    We would love to have you as a club sponsor!

    TCMAS has two Sponsorship options.
    1. Partial Sponsorship is $100 per year in a one time payment - or donated goods - actual value or MSRP of donated goods must exceed: $200 (a 2:1 ration vs the cash option)

    2. Full Sponsorship is $200 per year in a one time payment - or donated goods - actual value or MSRP of donated goods must exceed: $400 (a 2:1 ratio vs the cash option)
    Sponsorship dues will be due January 1st each year or pro-rated from the time you join so that renewal will be on January 1st.

    Any questions or if you would like to become a sponsor please contact (by message) AmyZ or email at Sponsors@TCMAS.ORG

    Benefits of Becoming a Partial Sponsor:
    * Rotating Banner Ad(s). Sponsors who wish to have one or more banner ads should submit a 468pixel by 60pixel sized image. Multiple banners will be cycled through in your rotation.
    * Listed in our Sponsor Forum. A link to your website will be listed under your company name.
    * Club Contest Inclusion. We frequently host contests for our members, if you'd like to directly help with one you can, ideas welcome! Those run by the members typically can win gift cards to a sponsor of their choice or products from a sponsor that we have purchased at a discount or received.

    Benefits of Becoming a Full Sponsor:
    * Rotating Banner Ad(s).
    Sponsors who wish to have one or more banner ads should submit a 468pixel by 60pixel sized image. Multiple banners will be cycled through in your rotation.
    * Customer Promotion at our Expos. Your customers get free raffle tickets for doing business with you in the two months leading up to our bi-annual expos EXPLANATION HERE. This is a win for us all and even better if they see you there!
    * Free Booth. One free table available at TCMAS events including expos, a $60 value. Additional tables may be available.
    * Dedicated Forum Page. You can post sales, specials, products, or hold discussions on your own page and it gets pushed for viewership the same as every single post on the forum, no Facebook games here. We encourage you to use the sponsor forum to promote your company/page and to advertise any sales/promotions/giveaways you do. YOU have control over your own forum.
    * Access to TCMAS Facebook Page. Let us know if you want something posted or shared: OUR PAGE
    * Public Classifieds.
    Your classifies are open to the public, harness our viewership not just our members!
    * Special Recognition for Raffle Donations. If you can be present, what better way then to be on stage handing out your raffle donation to the winner! Just let us know, booth not required.
    * Club Contest Inclusion. We frequently host contests for our members, if you'd like to directly help with one you can, ideas welcome! Those run by the members typically can win gift cards to a sponsor of their choice or products from a sponsor that we have purchased at a discount or received.
    * Help with Co-Sponsoring Events. Have a big gathering, speaker, class, event and want us to help? We're happy to be apart of your big day, check for approval. This would also include hosting meetings or tours. Introduce everyone to your facilities, staff, who you are, and your passion!

    We welcome the knowledge and experience that our Sponsors bring to the table and we do not wish to restrict your ability to share information with our users and participate in discussion.

    Terms and Conditions of being a Sponsor:

    - TCMAS does not endorse or discourage any commercial entity or product. Sponsors must adhere to all the forum policies including the following specifically set about for sponsors.
    - The status of sponsorship remains at our discretion. We value our sponsor participants and the knowledge you bring to the forum! Only authorized sponsors may post commercial content.
    - Sponsors must restrict posting unsolicited content that advertises services or contains price quotes to their personal Sponsor Forum.
    - Outside of your Sponsor Forum, when a user is looking for help or asking questions (about products, techniques, etc), sponsors may post in a manner that is related to their question as long as any content is limited to answering the question or solving the problem/issue.
    - Similarly, outside of the Sponsor’s Forum, if (and only if) a user requests (solicits) a sponsor to provide information or pricing on a product or service, please do so via a private conversation or direct the poster to your Sponsor Forum.
    - Sponsors are not allowed to post replies to a "Buy" listing in the Classifieds indicating that they have the item being sought; you can private message them if you wish.
    - Sponsors pay the sponsorship dues by January 1st and may donate product to be reimbursed their annual sponsor fees. Actual value or MSRP of donated goods must exceed: $200 (a 2:1 ration vs the cash option) for PARTIAL Sponsorship or $400 (a 2:1 ratio vs the cash option) for FULL Sponsorship. The BOD reserves the right to accept or reject this option on a sponsor by sponsor basis.
