Website Advertiser
Put your ad on our newly designed website and promote yourself or your business for an entire year. Our advertising prices are extremely affordable and provide you with an ongoing message all year long. We have two sizes to accommodate your budget and message. The website is currently receiving over 6,000 unique hits a month. A large Home Page Banner (center of Home Page) ad will only cost you $500 a year and a Side Bar Banner Ad which is visible on every page of the site is only $250 for an entire year. There is a limit of 10 spots for each ad. Ads will be linked to your direct website.
DESIGN & LAYOUT SERVICE AVAILABLE FOR ONLY $50 PER AD. MUST SUPPLY LOGO & INFO

Board Lunch Sponsor
We have a unique opportunity this year for you to have a captive audience all to yourself. There are only 11 spots available for this sponsorship and the cost is basically how ever much you want to spend on lunch. This is also a first-come, first-served opportunity. You get to choose a month to sponsor the Board lunch. With this sponsorship, you can either have us order lunch or you can schedule it on your own with your own theme in mind. Lunch will be served from 11:30 – 12:00 on the first Thursday of each month and you can have lunch and network with the Board members for that time. You will also have a few minutes at the meeting to promote your product or service if you want and you can have a small table top display in the HBA office lobby. Some themes may be Pizza and Pasta, Cinco de mayo, Wings and Things, BBQ in lot, etc. This is a great opportunity for you to get in some one-on-one networking in a convenient time frame for a small investment.

E-Mail Signature Sponsor
Have your logo and tag line prominently displayed on every single outgoing e-mail from the HBA. Limited to only 2 companies per month and you must commit to a minimum of 3 months. Hundreds of e-mails leave the HBA office weekly so you are assured your message is reaching not only member companies but other potential clients as well. The cost for this sponsorship is $150 for three months or $500 for a one year commitment. First-come, first-served.

Permit Report Sponsor
One of the most widely used member services is the monthly permit report. In 2013 we will be sending the permit report separate from the monthly newsletter in order to get it in your hands as soon as it is released. Also, we will be mailing it to you as well as e-mailing it. We’ve heard from many of you that you prefer mailed information and we want you to have this important information as soon as it becomes available. We are also working on tracking Clark, Logan and Champaign county permits so you will have a comprehensive list of permits pulled in our jurisdiction. If you would like to market your company on this report, we will be accepting no more than five business card size ads for each month’s report. This sponsorship helps offset the cost of postage and printing of the permit reports. Your message will reach hundreds of prospects each month. Each ad is 3 1/2” wide by 2” tall. E-mail ad to Angie McWhirter at eo@westernohiohba.com or send a business card to the HBA office.
The cost for this sponsorship is $40 per month.

Member Mixer Sponsor
Host a Member Mixer at your place of business and shine a spotlight on your company. We will promote the event in our newsletter, on our website and by invitation. You provide the venue, the food and the drinks. As with the Board Lunch Sponsorship, you pick the theme.  Are you a flooring company?  Then let’s call it “Pours and Floors!”  Italian, Mexican or German…they all go with beer. Pick your theme, call your favorite restaurant or caterer and host a great Member Mixer at your place and be the star of the evening. So many times we’ve heard how members have acquired new business contacts just by hosting a Member Mixer. This gives other members the opportunity to see where you are located, what services you offer and it’s all done in a very relaxed way. The Mixers are usually done around 5:00 – 8:00 PM, but call to discuss a luncheon Member Mixer or even start the day off with a Member Mixer and have a great breakfast spread.

Education Sponsor
In 2017 our education goal is to host several educational programs throughout the year including webinars at the HBA office on Energy Star, Building Code Updates, etc. and to bringing in top named motivational and educational speakers.  Your sponsorship includes promotion at the event and on our website and facebook boost postings. Cost $500.

Home Show Sponsor
By far the biggest bang for your buck.  We have worked hard on reaching everone in the Miami Valley that will be affiliated with this Home and Garden Show!  Become a Home Show Sponsor and receive recognition in all Miami County Home Show advertising.  Depending on which level of sponsorship you choose you can reach up to 1.1 million people and over!
Sponsor cost – $1500-$3500-$7,000 depending on level.
