The Milwaukee Chapter of the ISSA (the Chapter) is comprised of security professionals in a variety of impactful and decision-making capacities at leading organizations around Milwaukee and the upper Midwest.  In an ongoing effort to improve the quality of meetings and events, and to return the greatest value to our members, the Chapter invites sponsorships for meetings and events.

In exchange for monetary gifts, the Chapter will provide a variety of services and marketing opportunities, according to guidelines listed below.  Exceptions or alterations to these guidelines may be made at the discretion of the Chapter President, or by a majority of the Chapter Board of Directors.

Three forms of vendor sponsorships are available: Annual; Special Event; and Monthly Meeting

 

1. Annual

$2500 The Annual sponsor is our premier Chapter sponsor, receiving maximum exposure in Chapter communications and events.  The Annual sponsor is listed as an annual sponsor of all special Chapter events, including workshops, conferences, parties, and vendor forums.  The Annual sponsor will hold an honorary Corporate membership in the Chapter for one year (ending December 31) and is invited to participate in all open Chapter meetings according to Corporate membership guidelines (this membership is to local chapter events and does not include any International ISSA benefits nor benefits at other chapters outside the Milwaukee ISSA).  Annual sponsorships are limited to 6 vendors. Payment must be received before receiving benefits.

2. Special Event

$1000  Throughout the year, the Chapter plans and promotes special events such as summits, conferences, or workshops.  The Special event sponsorship is for vendors who wish to participate in and use a single event for marketing purposes. The Special Event sponsor may send two representatives to the special event at no additional cost, and provide marketing collateral from a table at the event (table provided by the Chapter).  The sponsor will be identified and thanked at the beginning and end of the event.  There are often multiple special event sponsors per special event.  Payment must be received before the special event.

Payment must be received before the sponsored meeting.
