Corporate Sponsorship Program


The Wisconsin City/County Management Association (WCMA) encourages the development and improvement of professional local government management in Wisconsin by advocating and affirming improvements in local government administration and by offering support to its members in their quest for great professional proficiency.
The ongoing success of WCMA is dependent on several factors, but possibly none as important as the continued financial support of our corporate partners. As an Association, we believe that encouraging private sector partnership can enhance our knowledge and understanding of your expertise, services and/or products available to municipalities and counties. We invite you to join us by serving as a sponsor of the Association. Your organization may choose to support WCMA through the WCMA Corporate Partnership Program at one of four levels:

  • Platinum Level $6,500 (limited to 2 sponsors)
  • Gold Level $3,500
  • Silver Level $2,500
  • Bronze Level $1,000

Below is an overview of the valuable benefits that correspond with each partnership level. Benefits of membership include access to government decision makers, opportunities to showcase your corporation to local governments, timely news and trends, and more! Membership applications are subject to review and approval of the Board of Directors of the Association. Membership is for one year and based on a calendar year basis, although applications may be accepted and considered at any time throughout the year.
If you have any questions, please contact WCMA Executive Director Cory Poris Plasch at 815-753-0972 or e-mail her at cporis1@niu.edu. We look forward to your participation in the WCMA Corporate Sponsorship Program. Thank you for your consideration.
