NRCSA annually has 70 or more business affiliates
To become a Business Affiliate Member, your organization must become a NRCSA partner or participate in a NRCSA event as an exhibitor or sponsor.
· Allow vendors to access more advertising to a wider audience through NRCSA throughout the year,
· Put vendors first in line to access registration at NRCSA’s Statewide events, and
· Make it possible for vendors to only have to process one payment per year.
There are three levels of sponsorship: Purple Ribbon Partner, Blue Ribbon Supporter, and Red Ribbon Friend.
A Purple Ribbon Partner receives preferential treatment in the assignment of vendor spaces at the NRCSA Spring Conference (you will be allowed input); will be considered a major sponsor of the Spring Conference with all of the attendant benefits and advertising; will have a prepaid foursome at the NRCSA Joe Toczek Golf Tournament and be considered a major sponsor of this event as well. In addition, Purple Ribbon Partners will receive their company logo and a link to contact information on the NRCSA website and in NRCSA’s Monthly Member Updates. Once per year Purple Ribbon Partners will be featured in an article in the Member Update. The cost for this level of sponsorship is $3,000.00.
A Blue Ribbon Supporter receives an exhibit space at the NRCSA Spring Conference; will be considered a minor sponsor of the Spring Conference with all of the attendant benefits and advertising; will have a guaranteed foursome (NOT PREPAID) at the NRCSA Joe Toczek Golf Tournament; and be considered a hole sponsor for this event as well. In addition, Blue Ribbon Supporters will be identified as a sponsor on the NRCSA website, as well as in NRCSA’s Monthly Member Updates six (6) times per year. The cost for this level of sponsorship is $1,500.00.
A Red Ribbon Friend receives an exhibit space at the NRCSA Spring Conference. In addition, Red Ribbon Friends will be identified as a sponsor on the NRCSA website, as well as in NRCSA’s Monthly Member Updates three (3) times per year. The cost for this level of sponsorship is $750.00.
NOTE: The NRCSA monthly Member Update goes out to Superintendents and Board of Education members at all member schools, as well as to others listed by the district. Most often these would be Principals and Counselors. Thus, at least 1,700 decision makers in member districts and ESUs receive the Update each month.
For any level of sponsorship, NRCSA would still be open to negotiating other forms of sponsorship and support with individual vendors.
Exhibiting at the Spring Conference
The cost of an exhibit table at the conference is $430.00 and includes an 8-foot exhibit table and chairs, all printed materials from the conference, a gift, and listings in both the printed and on-line exhibitor directories.
Exhibition materials for the conference are mailed in early December, and the Spring Conference always takes place the third Thursday and Friday of March at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Convention Center in Kearney. Exhibit spaces and sponsorships are sold on a first come-first served basis and sell out quickly.
Participating in the NRCSA Joe Toczek Golf Tournament
The NRCSA Joe Toczek Golf Tournament is held annually in late July or early August at the Meadowlark Hills Golf Course in Kearney. Vendors participate in this event by playing alongside members and sponsoring activities during the event. Sponsorships for this event range in price from $150 to $600 dollars and include signage and advertising during the event.
