Hello to our Friends & industry Colleagues!
What a year it’s been! ‘Unprecedented’ does not fully cover the scope and scale of changes that have come about to impact our industry. As we continue to face challenges and hope for a better year ahead, the CIU Executive team is looking forward to continuing to offer rewarding educational opportunities to our members. We are also very excited to support the new Continuing Education Program this year through collaboration with our partners at ALU and AHOU.
The CIU’s commitment is to provide the best in networking, education, and professional development. On that note, CIU’s Executive team is so very pleased to take this opportunity to connect with you all once again and to thank you, our supportive sponsors who have stayed the course with us throughout this last turbulent year.
Our sponsors are a vital part of our CIU industry community and as we pivot to virtual, CIU is once again seeking your partnership in support of our association’s 2021 AGM program events.
As our industry’s key partners your contributions are a large, integral part of ensuring the success of CIU’s ongoing Annual General Meeting program. This pivot to a virtual setting will infuse the AGM program with new and exciting added dimensions, offering additional exposure and fresh participatory and engagement options to our members, and to you our sponsors.
CIU will continue with our Sponsorship program’s single donation level. As an official CIU Sponsor, with a one-time annual donation of $1,800.00, you become our Sponsor of CIU’s 2021 AGM events and of any upcoming education events extending to January of 2022.
Your 2021 CIU Sponsorship will offer you the following visibility and benefits:
Company logo is prominently displayed at CIU’s new website with acknowledgments & appropriate visibility and links to your social media platforms
Company logo, website & profile introductions featured on the CIU AGM Program
Partnership support acknowledgment at the annual 2021 Fall Education Webinar and Winter Education Seminar
CIU continues in offering Sponsorship donations of up to $550.00, as being our valued “Friend of the CIU” with your company’s logo also featured at CIU’s AGM.
In order that we may continue to prepare for CIU’s AGM program events, please confirm your commitment in renewing your sponsorship via an e-mail us. As internal budgeting varies, please also confirm your intent to make your contribution payment date; CIU’s annual fiscal year-end is March 31st, 2021.
Please issue your payment of choice to the Canadian Institute of Underwriters (REF: CIU SPONSORSHIP). Methods of payment include EFT *(preferred), Credit Card (Mastercard, VISA, AMEX - a 5% transaction service charge will be applied). For our USA Sponsors, please advise us of any special compliance documents you may require from us here at CIU, for the processing of your payment relating to your Sponsorship commitment. Sponsorship fees paid in USD are requested at par.
Along with your commitment, we request your corporate logo in its most recent version sent to us as high-resolution graphic files, as well as transparencies and print-ready formats. Pantones and usage guidelines are also helpful. Due to many recent changes to corporate logo, and for maximum visibility, we need to ensure CIU is using your preferred, current logo in a high-resolution format.
Please note CIU Sponsorship support does not cover annual association membership fees. CIU’s 2021 Annual Memberships are currently being canvassed for CIU’s 2021 online Directory. CIU counts on many of our Sponsors and their staff as its valued members. We will continue to encourage Sponsors’ participatory memberships, especially this year, as we strengthen our industry bonds and network through educational and professional development.
Through your support of CIU, your organization’s brand reaches underwriting and insurance professionals across Canada, the USA, and internationally. We are most grateful to our many CIU Sponsors for your ongoing financial contributions as you enable us to continue to offer exceptional experiences to our network of members and the industry community.
Together with you, the future looks bright! CIU looks forward to the pleasure of partnering with you once again in 2021. It’s going to be another challenging year, yet our partnerships, transformations, and commitments present a solid path forward as we continue to come together, bringing our mutual visions and values to life.
Questions, comments, or ideas to share with us? We would be delighted to hear from you! Feel free to contact CIU leadership or any member of the CIU’s Executive team. We look forward to seeing you soon! We wish you all the best for a safe and healthy year!
CIU Past Chair and the Executive Team!
