Monthly Meeting Sponsorship

The American Institute of Architects – Southwestern Oregon Chapter (AIA-SWO) offers a chapter meeting sponsorship program as a means for companies to feature their services and products of interest to our membership. For the sponsor, the benefits would include:
  • Recognition on all meeting notification materials distributed to every AIA-SWO professional, associate, and affiliate member in advance of the selected meeting.
  • Identification as a sponsor on the annual Program Calendar posted as a printable pdf file on the AIA-SWO chapter website.
  • Exclusive access to AIA-SWO members who attend the chapter meeting, including the opportunity to present products/services with a tabletop display during the social hour preceding the dinner and program.
  • The opportunity to address the assembled group for up to 5 minutes following dinner and prior to start of the evening’s program. Upon advance request, AIA-SWO can furnish a digital projector and screen for the sponsor’s presentation.
  • First rights to future chapter meeting sponsorship opportunities.
The cost of sponsorship would be proportionate to the number of members who attend the selected meeting, with a per capita rate of $17.00 or a maximum of $300, whichever is less. Typically, attendance at the chapter meetings has averaged between 20 and 30 persons. Unless noted otherwise, the AIA-SWO meetings take place at The Actors Cabaret, located in downtown Eugene at 996 Willamette Street, on the third Wednesday of each month. Social hour begins at 5:30, dinner at 6:30, and the program at 7:00.

If you are a vendor interested in sponsoring one of our chapter meetings, contact me via e-mail at or by phone at (541) 342-8077. Opportunities remain available for our chapter meetings throughout 2009.
