Why be a Sponsor?

We know how important vendors are to our success as credit union human resources, training and development executives. We know, too, how important it is for you to be able to reach those executives across the country with news of your products and services. And we've been told that vendors want to show support to the CUNA HR/TD Council in a way that's meaningful to the relationships they want to build.

Vendors can attend the conference through the sponsorship program by selecting an event and completing the sponsor signup form.

We believe we have an opportunity for you to show that support and gain the high profile image with the country's premier credit union human resources, training and development executives that you're looking for.

How does it work?

At the CUNA HR/TD Council Summit, there is an opportunity for different levels of sponsorship. You can decide which sponsorship best fits your needs and budget. With all levels of sponsorship, you will receive mention in the program guide, signage at the conference and public recognition. In addition, at the gold and silver sponsorship level you will receive one complimentary registration. Platinum sponsorships receive two complimentary registrations. Higher levels of sponsorship will receive more opportunities for exposure.

Through the Sponsorship Program, you'll be able to sponsor the popular social and dynamic educational events that give the CUNA HR/TD Summit its unique feel and flavor. The Sponsorship Program allows you to mix and mingle with all participants while showing financial support in a public way that will attract attention, earn the respect of human resources, training and development executives; plus the thanks of the CUNA HR/TD Council through signage, the conference handbook and public recognition. In addition, it will allow you the opportunity to discuss your products and services in detail with conference attendees at all social events, educational sessions, networking breaks, luncheons, and receptions.

Additional vendor representative information - Our sponsorship program allows sponsors to attend all educational sessions, meal functions and networking events along with the credit union attendees. Over the years, past attendees from both the credit union side and supplier side have cited the value of vendor representatives as a part of the whole conference, not just those limited "welcome center opportunities."  For that reason we don't offer a pass for "non-session attendees" who simply wish to staff your display. Additional registrants beyond the number of complimentary registrations included with your sponsorship are at the rate of $845 each. 

Additional participants from the same firm (not affiliates) may also attend based on the sponsorship level in which you commit.


What Activities Are Not Permitted?

The purpose of the Sponsorship Program is to provide vendors with the opportunity to support the annual conference and in return receive considerable name recognition and direct networking opportunities. We request that our Sponsors use good judgment and business practices while interacting with our attendees. Activities or behaviors considered less than productive jeopardize the value of the conference for our attendees and may result in termination of the Sponsor relationship.

No activities may be scheduled at any time that will draw participants away from sessions or other conference activities.

Attendee emails will be shared with you solely for your use as a sponsor for this event.  You may not use those emails for other purposes, or share them with any third parties.

Any activity not sanctioned by the CUNA Councils may not be advertised as part of the Sponsorship Program. The Council reserves the right to prohibit distribution of non-sanctioned materials within the designated conference areas of the hotel.

Additional participants from the same firm (not affiliates) may also attend based on the sponsorship level in which you commit.

Participation in the Sponsorship Program should not be viewed as an endorsement by the Council.


What Are The Deadlines?

In order to get your name in the conference materials, sponsorship payment will have to be processed no later than March 14, 2014. Sponsorship is always welcome, but agreements made after that date may not be mentioned in the Conference Program Guide. Payment must be made prior to sponsorships being accepted. We do not guarantee the availability of any opportunity until we receive written confirmation of intent and establish its availability. Payment must be made within 15 days of confirmation. It is best to commit and remit payment early.

Payment Terms: A $750 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve sponsorship. Payment in full must be received by March 14, 2014 to guarantee placement in the Program Guide. If payment is not received by final due date, space may be released to other sponsors.

Cancellation Policy: Refunds will be issued until five weeks prior to the start of the conference. No refunds will be available after this date. All cancellations must be submitted in writing. For more information, call us at (800) 356-9655, ext. 4018.
