Sponsorships for Future Meetings

Sponsor the Next SFVMA Meeting

In order to continue to support our charitable and scholarship funds, and generally maintain the organization (with keeping dues payments reasonable), the Board will continue to seek sponsorships that help to cover the costs of our programs. While we hope to avoid overt endorsement of specific products/services, etc. during the continuing education presentations, we feel it is reasonable to allow the sponsor to distribute marketing materials and to make a brief presentation with regard to promoting their interests in recognition of their generous support.

While we would encourage members-at-large to make announcements regarding new endeavors that would be of interest to the membership, we would kindly ask that promotional materials be limited to those provided by the sponsor organization. Thanks for your understanding!

If you are interested in sponsoring a future meeting, please contact Amy Lightstone: sfvmapresident@gmail.com
