RE: 68th Annual ESBOF Educational Conference - Sponsorship - Call for Board vote
Background, provided by Jen Space, Assoc AIA:
Cecelia has expressed an interest in helping promote AIAri and procure AIA CEU’s for the Eastern States Building Officials Federation’s 68th Annual Meeting.  The meeting this year is in Rhode Island.  I have attached a Sponsorship Brochure for everyone to take a look at.  The event is April  9-12 in Newport.
I am proposing sponsoring at the $600 level.  We will be able to have a table in the vendor area and present to the crowd.  Cecelia will man the table and do the presentation on AIAri’s behalf.  Jen Z has also offered to help out at the table.  This will be a nice way to gain exposure and promote the membership.  Cecelia has also asked the Membership Committee to help at the table.  If anyone else is interested I am sure Cecelia would love the help.  Also, if there are questions about the event please contact Cecelia.
Current Motion:
AIA Rhode Island to provide a $600 Sponsorship to 68th Annual ESBOF Educational Conference.
Note: Board voting allowed for 24 hours; the deadline is Friday March 30, 2017 at 2:30pm.
