Co-Sponsorship

Co-sponsorship is sharing the planning and implementation of an event.  Co-sponsorship not only provides a source to help share the expense of the event, but also provides more people to help with brainstorming and manpower.  When considering a co-sponsorship opportunity with another student organization, consider the following suggestions. 

1.  PROPOSAL
W hich organization would you like to invite for your co-sponsorship opportunity?  Write down some reasons why the group will benefit?  Include how much each group will contribute financially.

2.  SET MEETING
Once you have a few reasons for co-sponsorship, contact the president/student director of the organization.  Ask to meet with this individual to discuss your proposal.

3.  BRAINSTORM
Once both parties agree to work together on the event, gather the organizations' members to brainstorm ideas and logistics about the program.  Use these ideas to set goals for the event.

4.  DELEGATE
To involve both organizations, create a "to-do" list and ask members from both organizations to commit to a particular assignment.  Communicate frequently with one another.  Remember: it is important that both organizations are actively involved in the planning process for a true collaboration.

5.  PROGRAM
Make sure as many members from each organization as possible attends the program and recruit others to attend.

6.  EVALUATE
Once the event is complete, hold a joint meeting to discuss the successes of the event and possible suggestions for the future.  Be sure to share both the credit and the blame!
