  • 5. APLD Sponsorship Policy
    Chapter Sponsorships
    APLD encourages the Chapters to find innovative means by which to offer programs and events at a reasonable or subsidized rate for its members. Development of Chapter sponsorship programs is an innovative means to do this.
  • 6. Chapter sponsorship policy:
    May be for specific program, event or overall support of the Chapter
    All sponsorships must be communicated with headquarters when the quarterly financial reports are submitted
    Chapters are to look for sponsorships from local businesses and not solicit those businesses with either a national or international presence, unless that business has approached the Chapter directly.
    The Chapter should inform the potential Chapter sponsor of the APLD Sponsorship Program opportunity.
  • 7. Chapter sponsorship policy continued:
    Chapters are required to review the last two previous years of sponsors for APLD and are prohibited from contacting those companies, unless they obtain approval from the sponsorship chair.
    Upon request, APLD will supply mailing labels of Chapter members to the Chapter sponsorship volunteer/chair/contact person. This action can be requested on a quarterly basis following receipt of the Chapter’s quarterly financial statements. The labels will be send to the business by the Chapter contact person and will further support communication between the Chapter and the sponsoring business.
