2019 Sponsorship

For more than 25 years, the National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) has boosted national geospatial policy and provided a forum for best practices exchange and collaboration. While NSGIC's core membership is made up of geographic information officers (GIOs) and state GIS coordinators, partners in federal, municipal and county government, academicians, representatives of other geospatial organizations and private industry experts are vital to NSGIC's mission of making critical connections. NSGIC members - and our partners - lead the way in the creation of intelligent maps and databases that equip public and private leaders to make more informed and timely decisions.


NATIONAL CONNECTIONS IN ONE LOCATION

The NSGIC Annual Conferences and Midyear Meetings draw key decision-makers from US states and territories, eliminating the need for cross-country travel to educate customers and prospects about your offerings. Having access to many state members in one location is not only efficient; it enables sponsors to gain critical insight into multiple government organizations, including how to navigate through state-specific procurement procedures. Networking with executives in the national geospatial community can translate into making the best connections to impact government policies, build partnerships and expand your business.

Each sponsorship level comes with a set amount of points to be spent on opportunities of your choice in the following areas:

  • Special networking, both online and in-person

  • Meeting spaces & events
  • Branding

  • Additional memberships and conference registrations

  • Participate in topic-specific and full membership discussion forums
  • Join committees and workgroups to provide your company's expert opinion on various topics via conference calls, webinars, emails, online discussions, and in-person meetings
  • Access the member database for member-to-member communication

SMALL BUSINESS

New this year, we are offering 10 spots in an 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.
