Annual Sponsorship Details and Benefits
The GWDC established the Chapter Sponsorship Program to allow organizations to support the chapter and IT professions, which allows the GWDC to provide more services and higher quality events to our members. In return, sponsoring organizations are provided opportunities to promote, advertise, and interact with our membership. This is a WIN-WIN for the GWDC, its members, and our sponsoring organizations. The Sponsorship period runs 12 months from date of sponsorship purchase.
