Tennessee City Management Association 
Sponsorship Program  



The TCMA Sponsorship Program is designed to serve the mutual interests of the participating businesses and TCMA (the Association) by:

(1)  Providing broader exposure to TCMA members and understanding of those businesses and services targeted to the needs of Tennessee cities, and

(2)  Generating supplemental resources for the Association that can be used to enhance the educational programs and other activities of the Association.


Sponsorship Levels

Gold Level – An annual contribution of $2,500 (in-kind services may be possible if of value to the Association).  A Gold level sponsor will be provided five (5) minutes to profile their company or a project at one of the two annual conferences, and receive two complimentary conference registrations.  A Gold sponsor is permitted to register up to three (3) members to attend a conference.


A Gold level sponsor contributing $10,000 or more in financial or authorized in-kind services shall receive special recognition for their substantial and long-term commitment as a Platinum Level sponsor.  Platinum sponsors are permitted to register up to four (4) members to attend a conference.


Silver Level - An annual contribution of $1,500 (in-kind services may be possible if of value to the Association). A Silver level sponsor will receive one complimentary conference registration.  A Silver sponsor is permitted to register up to two (2) members to attend a conference.

Bronze Level - An annual contribution of $750 (in-kind services may be possible if of value to the Association). Bronze level sponsors are considered “friends” of the Association and may register for conferences provided they pay the non-member registration fee (currently $350).  A Bronze sponsor is permitted to register up to two (2) members to attend a conference.


Benefits

  • The level of benefits to the business and exposure to the members is dependent on the sponsorship level.
