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 both the NSGIC Annual Conference and Midyear Meeting per year of participation

  • One annual membership

  • Company logo projected during breaks at both conferences

  • Participation in a 30-minute networking session with the NSGIC Corporate Leadership Council, comprised of top sponsors, during the Midyear Meeting

  • Participation in the Emerging Partner Spotlight at the NSGIC Midyear Meeting: a session where sponsors have ten minutes each to introduce their company to conference attendees

  • 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 a sponsor wishes to continue after 3 years at the emerging partner level, they have the option to upgrade to an annual sponsorship at the bronze, silver, gold or platinum level with a 20% renewal discount. Participating sponsors may upgrade at any time during the 3-year period.

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