BENEFITS OF SPONSORSHIP

The goal of the Kansas City Heartland Area HDI Chapter Sponsorship program is to provide a unique opportunity for companies and organizations in the Heartland.   The Chapter provides companies an opportunity that targets a dynamic group of IT Service and Support leaders with the organizational message, products, or services.  Sponsors will be able to share the  organization’s brand and key message with people who are interested in hearing it.  Each organization can gain new contacts, friends, and visibility within the local and national communities.

Heartland Chapter Sponsorship provides each organization generous exposure at events, Chapter meetings, the Heartland website and meeting invitations.  Sponsors also have the opportunity to become an exclusive featured presenter at Chapter meetings on their products, services or a case study.  Below are some interesting facts about the Heartland Chapter:

  • The HDI Chapter holds at minimum four (4) Chapter events annually.  These events are open for members and registered guests.
  • Chapter events are pre-booked with relevant speaker presentations by industry experts.  They speak on a wide range of topics, which are both interesting and informative to our members.
  • Heartland Chapter events are networking opportunities and present opportunities to engage with local IT Service and Support professionals.
  • The Heartland Chapter website utilizes various Social Media sites such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook to reach their audience.

Each organization’s involvement in the Heartland Chapter Company Sponsorship program distinguishes them above others while getting their message out to targeted professionals.   As a registered non-profit organization, we truly depend on membership and sponsor support to continue to provide the valuable resource of an association focused on IT service and support professionals.  The Heartland Chapter is managed by experienced and influential volunteers from the service and support industry striving to work together to raise the bar in our industry.
