ACerS is pleased to announce Mo-Sci Corporation (Rolla, Mo.) and Saint-Gobain as the first companies to join as Diamond Corporate Partners in ACerS new Corporate Partnership program. The new program, launched in early 2017 and announced in the January/February issue of the Bulletin, will replace the existing Corporate Membership program by the end of 2017.
The program creates more value for member companies, provides increased visibility for those companies, and forges stronger relationships with the Society, its members, and other partner companies.
“I would highly recommend the Diamond Corporate Partnership level to all companies that are, or plan to become, active in ACerS,” says Ted Day, CEO of Mo-Sci Corporation. “Based upon the value of the benefits only, it’s the best plan for corporate membership.”
According to Kevin Thompson, ACerS director of membership, the new program is geared towards engagement with the Society. “We want to have a partnership with member companies, not only by providing resources, but to have ongoing dialogue with our industry partners. We are here to serve all members. If we can help member companies succeed, it helps ACerS achieve its goals of serving a vibrant industry.”
Three levels of Corporate Partnership (Corporate, Sapphire, and Diamond) offer specific benefits in three key areas: 1) Marketing/Business Development; 2) Professional Development; and 3) Technical Resources.
“As the saying goes, ‘the more you put into something, the more you get out of it,’” continues Thompson. “By engaging with the Society through conferences, trade shows, advertising, sponsorships, etc., the more connected you become with ACerS and its 11,000 plus members.”
Response has been very positive so far, according to Thompson. “I spoke with a lot of companies at the recent ICACC show in Daytona Beach, and there was a lot of interest in the new program.”
