    Sponsorship Opportunities

    In order to help support the mission of the Eastern Illinois Chapter to advance the practice of architecture in our part of Illinois, we offer groups and individuals the ability to advertise and sponsor the events we host during the year. The following is a summary of the types of sponsorships we solicit. If you are interested in sponsoring an event, please contact a member of the Board.

    Sponsorships can be purchased directly through the online Catalog. See the available links in the left margin, or the Catalog Tab above.

    Monthly Meetings

    The chapter holds a monthly meeting typically on the last Wednesday of the month. The meeting starts with an hour of networking and cocktails. We then have dinner followed by a continuing education presentation. We typically ask for a $300 sponsorship to help defray the costs of the dinner.

    Annual Golf Outing

    Every summer our Chapter hosts a golf outing event at the prestigious Cog Hill Golf Course in Lemont, Illinois. The event is held to raise funds for our annual scholarships for students studying to become the next generation of architects.

    PAR Advertiser $50.00
    BIRDIE Hole Sponsor $150.00
    EAGLE Dinner Sponsor $250.00
    HOLE-IN-ONE Prize Awards Sponsor $350.00
    DOUBLE EAGLE Prize Awards Sponsor $500.00

    All sponsors will be recognized in our Eastwords Newsletter and tournament program, and at the dinner event. Hole Sponsors will have company’s name/logo displayed at a tee box on course.

    Annual Dinner

    Every December our chapter hosts an annual holiday dinner and celebration to recognize the efforts and accomplishments of our members. In every other year, we use this event to give out our design awards. We offer a number of different sponsorship levels for the event.

    Eastwords Advertising

    We also offer advertising space in our monthly newsletter, Eastwords, which is distributed to our entire membership and to others throughout the state. The cost for advertising is $150 annually.

    (However, with the combined purchase of an Allied Membership for $95, the advertising is discounted to $105)
