Purchase Sponsorship

Welcome to the Project Management Institute East Tennessee Chapter

Greetings,

As the President of the Project Management Institute East Tennessee Chapter (ETPMI), I want to personally thank you for considering an investment in the ETPMI Sponsorship program.  I hope that you are able to find the level of sponsorship that meets and advances the individual needs of your business.

The ETPMI Board began this New Year by considering the goals we share with our PMI parent organization and how we would define success for ETPMI.  We captured this in our Strategic Plan and Vision Statement to serve as the basis for decisions we will make throughout the year, and as the standard against which we will assess our performance throughout the year. Let me share that with you here.

Vision Statement

The vision of ETPMI is to be a premier PMI Chapter in providing value to our membership by offering tools, resources, education and networking opportunities to help members to be successful as project management practitioners within the communities that ETPMI represents.

You will find that the ETPMI Board is comprised 100% by enthusiastic and motivated volunteers who are committed to the project management profession and advancing its skilled application for the benefit of our members and communities.

We are very hopeful that we can include you in the ETPMI family and make you a part of the great things we plan to accomplish!

Thank you again,

Harry Bailey
President
PMI East Tennessee Chapter

Some sponsors may elect to make “in-kind” donations for their sponsorship contribution. All sponsors wishing to make in-kind donations must submit an In-Kind Donation Proposal Form to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. All in-kind donation proposals are submitted to the ETPMI board for review and approval. In-kind donations that will be considered include, but are not limited to, the following:

Benefits for in-kind sponsorship will be determined based on the event and the value of the in-kind donation.

Networking Event

A great way to promote your company’s products or services is to host and sponsor an ETPMI Networking Event. These are social networking events that allow members to network with other chapter members and with representatives of the sponsor.

Professional Development Day

Professional Development Day (PDD) is a Fall-Season (typically September) event with a variety of regional and national speakers invited to make presentations and hold sessions on topics that are directly related to the practice of project management, or supporting specialties. As a Sponsor of our PDD, you will be putting your company name, products, and services in front of the area’s premier current and future business leaders. Our membership consists of a wide array of ETPMI project management professionals and executives that represent a broad base of industries.

  3. The Chapter shall not provide to the Sponsor any information pertaining to membership or conference attendee lists, including but not limited to databases, lists, mailing labels and reports. Such information is considered confidential and shall not be shared with individuals or business entities outside of PMI or the Chapter.
  4. The Sponsor shall provide to the Chapter all necessary logos and other information, content and materials (in printed, electronic and/or other form) for use in connection with its sponsorship of the Event; provided, however, that all uses of such logos and other information, content and materials shall be determined by the Chapter in its sole discretion, such determination which shall not be unreasonable.

Optional: E. During the Term of this Agreement, the Sponsor shall be permitted to utilize the Chapter’s name, acronym and logo for the sole purpose of promoting the Sponsor’s sponsorship of the Event, pursuant to the terms of Section IV below. All uses by Sponsor of the Chapter’s name, acronym and logo shall be subject to the prior approval of the Chapter.

  1. Mutual Intellectual Property License.
  2. Limited License to the Chapter. In connection with the Chapter’s grant to the Sponsor to sponsor the Event, the Chapter is hereby granted a limited, revocable, non-exclusive license to use the name “[insert Sponsor name],” the acronym “[insert Sponsor acronym, if applicable] ,” and the logo of the Sponsor (hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Sponsor Marks”) solely to identify the Sponsor as a sponsor of the Event, with the limited authority to use the Sponsor Marks solely in connection with the activities authorized under this Agreement, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The Sponsor represents and warrants that it has the full right and authority to enter into this Agreement and to grant the license provided herein; that it has not previously in any manner disposed of any of the rights herein granted to the Chapter nor previously granted any rights adverse thereto or inconsistent therewith; that there are no rights outstanding which would diminish, encumber or impair the full enjoyment or exercise of the rights herein granted to the Chapter; and that the Sponsor Marks do not and will not violate or infringe upon any patent, copyright, literary, privacy, publicity, trademark, service mark, or any other personal or property right of any third party, nor will same constitute a libel or defamation of any third party.
  3. Limited License to Sponsor. In connection with the Chapter’s grant to the Sponsor to sponsor the Event, the Sponsor is hereby granted a limited, revocable, non-exclusive license to use the name “[Chapter Name],” the acronym “[insert acronym here, if applicable],” and the logo of the Chapter (hereinafter collectively referred to as the “the Chapter Marks”) solely with the term “Sponsor” prominently displayed directly adjacent thereto (to ensure the absence of any implication that the Sponsor is endorsed by the Chapter), with the limited authority to use the Chapter Marks solely in connection with the activities authorized under this Agreement, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

In no event shall the Sponsor use the Chapter Marks in a manner that states or implies an endorsement of the Sponsor (or Sponsor’s products or services) by the Chapter. Any material failure by the Sponsor to comply with the terms and conditions of this limited license, whether wilful or negligent, may result in the immediate suspension or revocation of this license, in whole or in part, by the Chapter. The interpretation and enforcement (or lack thereof) of such terms and conditions, and compliance therewith, shall be made by the Chapter in its sole discretion.

  1. General Provisions.
  2. The Sponsor Marks and the Chapter Marks are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Marks.”
  3. The Marks are and shall remain at all times the sole and exclusive property of their respective owners (i.e., the Chapter shall be considered the “owner party” and the Sponsor shall be considered the “non-owner party” with respect to the Chapter Marks; Sponsor shall be considered the “owner party” and the Chapter shall be considered the “non-owner party” with respect to the Sponsor Marks). The respective Marks may be used by the non-owner parties if and only if such use is made pursuant to the terms and conditions of this limited license.
  4. The owner parties’ respective logos may not be revised or altered by the non-owner parties in any way, and must be displayed in the same form (and colors, if applicable) as provided by the owner parties.
  5. The respective Marks must be used by the non-owner parties in a professional manner and solely in connection with the activities authorized under this Agreement. The respective non-owner parties shall not permit any third party or parties to use the Marks of the owner parties without the express prior written approval of the owner parties. The respective non-owner parties shall not use the Marks of the owner parties in conjunction with any third party trademark, service mark, or other mark without the express prior written approval of the owner parties.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the respective Marks may not be used by the non-owner parties for individual personal or professional gain or other private benefit, and the respective Marks may not be used by the non-owner parties in any manner that: diminishes their value or otherwise dilutes the Marks; discredits the owner parties or tarnishes their respective reputations and goodwill; is false, misleading or likely to cause confusion, mistake or deception; violates the rights of others; violates any federal, state or local law, regulation or other public policy; or mischaracterizes the relationship between the parties, including but not limited to the fact that the Sponsor is a separate and distinct legal entity from, and is not an agent of, the Chapter.
  6. The respective owner parties shall have the right, from time to time, to request complete samples of use of their Marks by the non-owner parties from which they can determine compliance with these terms and conditions.
  7. Use of the respective owner parties’ Marks by the non-owner parties shall create no rights for the non-owner parties in or to such Marks or their use beyond the terms and conditions of this limited license. All rights of usage of the respective owner parties’ Marks by the non-owner parties shall terminate immediately upon the termination or expiration of this Agreement. Upon the termination or expiration of this Agreement, the respective non-owner parties shall:
    1. immediately cease utilization of the owner parties’ Marks for any purpose;
    2. return forthwith all originals and copies of the owner parties’ Marks to the respective owner parties (whether in printed, electronic, recorded, and/or other tangible form); and
