Emerging Partner Program

Each year NSGIC will select up to 5 companies to participate in our 3-year emerging partner sponsorship program. The program is designed for smaller companies, with 10 or fewer employees so that they might participate fully in NSGIC conferences and grow towards becoming a NSGIC annual sponsor at the bronze, silver, gold, or platinum level.

The sponsorship includes:

  • One waived registration fee to one meeting of your choosing between the NSGIC Annual Conference and Midyear Meeting per year of participation

  • One annual membership

  • Participation in a 30-minute networking session with the NSGIC Corporate Leadership Committee

  • Introduce your company and your representatives for two minutes during the Roll Call of States at the Annual Conference. In this session, NSGIC state representatives each have two minutes to share their accomplishments, challenges, and goals.

  • Spotlight your company’s work on the NSGIC GeoJava blog and in an issue of the NSGIC monthly newsletter. Article content provided by the sponsor with final approval by NSGIC editorial staff. The article may be up to 700 words and include up to three images or graphics.

Price: $4,000 / year

If an emerging partner wishes to continue after 2 years at the emerging partner level, they have the option to upgrade to an annual business partnership at the bronze, silver, gold or platinum level. Participating emerging partners may upgrade at any time during the 2-year period.

Emerging Partners may purchase one additional conference registration per conference for $1500 and may purchase additional benefits using points for $125 per point.
