2015-2016 Annual NEDRA
The New England Development Research Association (NEDRA) is the nation’s largest regional association of professionals working in prospect research and related areas of philanthropy.
With a membership base exceeding 450 professionals, our organization represents nearly 240 institutions in 17 states and three countries, with the largest contingent in New England and New York.
NEDRA members play a key role in the decision-making process for buying data products, consulting services and fundraising systems.
Our members are professionals in research, advancement services and fundraising, and approximately one-quarter hold the title of Director, Executive Director or Vice President. Our members represent a wide variety of organizations, from one-person shops to large, multi-functional departments currently engaged in capital campaigns of six billion dollars or more. A list of our member institutions is attached.
NEDRA is excited to announce that our 29th Annual Conference will be held April 14-15 at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel in Portsmouth, NH.
The NEDRA Annual Conference is one of the best attended conferences of its kind in New England, with more than 220 development research professionals attending last year. For 2016, we are returning to the beautiful seaside town of Portsmouth, NH. This venue provides vendors with exposure and access to a large number of influential people in an intimate setting.
NEDRA is offering new sponsorship benefits for this year.
We consider our sponsors to be year-long partners and have developed benefits to extend your opportunity to connect with our members throughout 2016.
This year, we will be hosting several VINO (Very Informal Networking Opportunity) receptions for our members and sponsors. We will be offering the opportunity to sponsor the VINOs in order of sponsorship level, contacting the Chapter sponsors first, followed by the Platinum sponsors and Gold sponsors. VINO sponsors will have their company name paired with all the marketing for the event and will be afforded the opportunity to say a few words of welcome and/or pass out items. For sponsors who are too far away to be present, a NEDRA board member will be happy to welcome the members on your behalf and share any words or materials you’d like to offer. We are also encouraging our sponsors to consider submitting educational articles or content for publication in the NEDRA News and NEDRA Industry News blogs.
Year-long exposure will include placement of your logo on the NEDRA home page and vendor sections of the NEDRA website and ad placement in up to four issues of the NEDRA News blog.
2015 NEDRA sponsorship provides extensive, prominent exposure for your company.
Chapter, Platinum and Gold Sponsorship levels include an opportunity to present your services to our membership in designated, well-marketed time slots with no competing program sessions. Sponsors are also provided exhibit space, prominent recognition at registration, company logo and web address placement on the NEDRA Conference webpage, and other benefits.
To partner with NEDRA on any of these opportunities, please contact our Sponsorship Co-Chair Mary Taddia at firstname.lastname@example.org. NEDRA remains flexible in discussing all proposals for partnership. We look forward to your engagement with NEDRA throughout 2015-2016!
