Sponsorship of our meetings gets your organization exposure in front of our members.

Agile CT members are keenly interested in agile practices and are busy actually implementing Scrum and agile in the workplace.

A high percentage of the members have real decision-making authority in their IT organizations.

 

Typical meeting attendance is in the range of 30 to 70 members.

Scrum and agile is beginning to cross over, and penetrate into non-IT projects and business decision-making. Scrum and agile are in fact emerging as highly effective management methods.

If you want to get in front of this audience, you can get involved immediately by taking up the role of Sponsor.

Costs

The minimum sponsor package is 3 meetings. We offer discounts when you commit to 6 or 12 months of meetings. Call for pricing.

Ground Rules

1. Banner ads are positioned according to current sponsor rank. Your banner is appended to the list of current sponsors. As old sponsors choose not to renew, they lose their place, and you move up.

2. You do not have exclusivity in your business domain area. For example, several Scrum trainers may choose to sponsor Agile Connecticut (CT). We accomodate them. If you are willing to pay a premium to be the exclusive sponsor in a given business domain, contact us (below) to explore that in more detail.

For emails: We send ONE email with just your marketing message and no other messaging from us or other sponsors. To enable this, you send us a WORD doc and we paste that into the email we send as HTML. To prepare, you format your message in WORD 2000 format and paste it into a FireFox email and send it to yourself... to be sure of how it looks. When you are satisfied with how it looks, you send the DOC to us with the date-of-send details, and we mail it for you.
