2020 Sponsorship Opportunities

ISFA Booster Club

The ISFA Booster Club serves as an advisory board to the association. Financial gifts (sponsorships) received from the Booster Club are used to create and develop new programs, or to revamp and relaunch existing ISFA programs. Booster Club members are invited to participate in a conference call each quarter with ISFA Executive Director, Amy Miller, and ISFA Board of Directors President, Augie Chavez. On these calls, ISFA’s quarterly goals, projects, and events are shared and discussed. Booster Club members provide feedback, generate new ideas, and make recommendations regarding how best to utilize Booster funds for the growth and success of ISFA and the industry.

In 2019, the ISFA Booster Club initiated and funded Strategic Planning and the relaunch of ISFA’s Million Dollar Mentorship Program. In addition to playing a vital role as an advisory board, Booster Club Members also receive special recognition by having their Company logo displayed in Countertops & Architectural Surfaces Magazine, the weekly ISFA Member Newsletter, and on www.isfanow.org. Logos displayed electronically are clickable and link back to the Booster Member’s website. New for 2020, ISFA Booster Club members receive an ISFA Booster Club logo to display on their website and a VIP reception at the ISFA 2020 Annual Conference.
