Work with Sponsors

To attract sponsors to your events, produce a print or email marketing piece and send it to local suppliers, or just contact the sponsors you want at your meeting directly. It’s generally best to approach a marketing or sales manager about opportunities with your Council.

When seeking out potential sponsors look to the CUES Directory of Suppliers, or ask the suppliers who currently work with your credit union. For additional information on how to attract sponsors, or to get sponsorship ideas, contact Kari Sweeney, VP/Supplier Solutions, at 800.252.2664, or 608.288.5326
