Upcoming Fiscal Year Budgeting
We know many of you are working on budgets for the upcoming fiscal year. While we do not send out invoices until after July 1st, we are happy to answer questions about membership fees and benefits. When we send out invoices this year, we will include the option to pre-register for sponsorship opportunities rather than have those spread throughout the year. Hopefully, this will help you as you build out your budgets. If you’d like to learn more about those opportunities currently, please email Connie at email@example.com
