Corporate Membership Program

As an association whose primary work is to advance relationships between students, campuses, and nations, NWACUHO recognizes the value of its relationship with its corporate partners at each conference and throughout the year. In an effort to further develop the relationships with the businesses and companies that provide products and services to our member institutions, we have developed a corporate membership option for those partners.

Each year the association’s corporate members have a great effect on the success of the annual conference by contributing financially as well as adding to the camaraderie of the association. Our hope is to further this relationship via the corporate membership program.  Please consider becoming a corporate member of NWACUHO today.

There is some important information to note for the upcoming NWACUHO Annual Conference.  It is important to NWACUHO that your involvement is recognized. Depending on your level of membership, different recognition is available at the conference.  If you have questions about that, please see the list below.  Additionally, corporate members are invited to sponsor specific items or events. You will have the option to select into those sponsorships when you become a member.

Why become a Corporate Member?

As an association, we recognize that our Corporate Partners are more than just exhibitors.  They are partners in ensuring the success of our students.  Our association’s primary work is to advance relationships between students, campuses, and nations.  We recognize the value of our members’ relationships with our corporate partners and sponsors at each conference and throughout the year.  In an effort to further develop the relationships with the businesses and companies that provide products and services to our member institutions, we have developed a corporate membership option for those partners.

Each year, the association’s corporate partners and sponsors contribute greatly to the success of the annual conference by contributing financially, as well as adding to the camaraderie of the association.  Our hope is to further this relationship via the Corporate Membership Program. 

There are two kinds of memberships, or partnerships, in NWACUHO: institutional memberships (for colleges and universities) and corporate memberships (for the companies that do business with the members of the Association.)  Please consider becoming or renewing your membership with NWACUHO today! 

 

Corporate Membership Levels

Our Corporate Membership option will allow you to streamline your sponsorship process while being an active member of the association.  While individual members are often familiar with a company name or product, the corporate membership will help to facilitate the individual relationships between your company’s representatives and the individual members who work on the campuses in our Northwest region.

The Corporate Membership program does not affect your interactions with individual schools and pre-existing relationships; however, we have found our membership is typically quite passionate about our region and the work we do, so you may find that your corporate membership with NWACUHO provides your company with an internationally recognized commonality with many of the institutions in your market.
