New Meeting Sponsorship Program
To expand the vocational fellowship and networking opportunities for our club members, the Rotary Club of Cincinnati is offering a new Meeting Sponsorship Program for the 2015-2016 Rotary year. This new program will allow the sponsoring member to network prior to the meeting, have their company logo displayed on the Rotary Club of Cincinnati website for the fiscal year, have their company logo displayed on the pre-meeting slide show, have a business-card size advertisement in the club roster, print advertisement (including a 1-2 paragraph description of the company) in the weekly ERays newsletter, and deliver a 60-second commercial at the sponsored meeting (video, slide show, or live presentation).
