Sponsors & Associate Members:

So, why should your company be interested in sponsorship?

When done well, sponsorship offers significant opportunities for distinct marketing and competitive advantages, as well as showing support of the CBGA. Sponsorship offers the possibility of achieving several goals:

  • Prominent link from CBGA Website to your web site

  • Logo advertisement on Banners, Signs and T-Shirts used in CBGA events

  • Decal for display – Notating “Corporate Sponsor of the Coastal Bend Guides Association” for the pledged year

  • Plaque for display – Notating “Official Sponsor of the Coastal Bend Guides Association” for the pledged year

  • Patronage of the business by CBGA members

  • The CBGA will not seek or implement a competing Sponsor as an “Official Sponsor”
