2020 KCITE SPONSORSHIP REQUEST

The KCITE Board would like to offer annual KCITE corporate sponsorships for 2020.

The KCITE Board has been using StarChapter association management services for the past few years for our website management and event registration.  The board has received positive feedback from our members and hopes to be able to continue to use this service.  It has also been a successful tool in simplifying many duties of board members which were once very time consuming.  Additionally, KCITE has won “Best MOVITE Chapter Website Award” many times in the past few years because of our use of StarChapter.

This tool comes at cost of nearly $1300 for yearly maintenance of the website.  In an effort to keep KCITE’s membership affordable, we are asking KCITE member businesses to donate $100 to support the cost of StarChapter. With your support, your business will receive logo recognition on the KCITE website as well as at our chapter meetings.  We will also be utilizing table tents at each regular meeting this year to ensure our sponsors are sufficiently recognized for their support.   

If your business is willing to support KCITE, please remit $100 by check before February 29, 2020 or by pay pal at our sponsor page.  Please call Jackie White at 816.969.1800 or email at [email protected] with any questions or to provide your company’s logo in .jpeg or .png format.

Checks can be mailed to the attention of Krystal Jolly at:

600 NE Colbern Road

Lee’s Summit, MO 64086

 

Thank you and your business for your support.

Very truly yours,

KCITE Board Members
