We LOVE Sponsors!
Welcome to the ONLY regional training and networking event for the volunteer leaders of Greek and collegiate alumni or parent's clubs and chapters!
What an exciting to be a part of the RIVAL Workshop in North Texas! Last December was our very first year to launch such an event and to our amazement, every goal was shattered! We experienced:
- 60 attendees representing alumni from
- 28 colleges, universities and organizations from
- 16 states nationwide and
- 10 athletic conferences;
- 15 sponsors including alumni associations and local clubs;
- 14 club leader speakers, and
- 1 incredible keynote!
Attendees came from as far away as Denver to participate! Clearly we are on to something! Leverage the momentum as we go into our second year, bigger and better yet!
As we are still a young event, though now proven, sponsorship levels are ridiculously low with no add-on costs (free lunch, etc.). You can make a major impact on any budget. You will be part of a small, select group of invited vendors guaranteeing personal contact with the attendees.
Your support helps keep the registration costs low, allowing many more volunteers to benefit from the programming and networking. Thank you!
Although we crossed our fingers last year for 20 attendees at the first event, we actually hosted nearly 60! This year we are anticipating 80 to 100. Like 2017, attendance is expected to consist primarily of volunteer alumni club/chapter leaders and alumni relations professionals from various colleges and universities.
The primary attendee group – volunteer alumni leaders – consists of local residents and leaders in the community who are also officers and board members of their respective alumni clubs. The alumni groups they represent span small clubs to those serving tens of thousands of local alumni. These are the people who determine what events are planned – and where. They are seeking interesting venues, trendy bars and restaurants, memorable experiences, and much more – help them!
These people are also the ones who determine what fundraisers will happen and what services the club or chapter will need. They want to build long-term relationships with local businesses for these services.
Additionally, although they will come together at the RIVAL Workshop wearing their volunteer hats, by weekday they lead complete other lives representing a vast cross-section of professions, functions and interests in the business and consumer spaces. Each of those businesses needs products and services as well. Make the most of it!

For clarification, the local alumni clubs and chapters for the above universities are who attends the RIVAL Workshop. Thus, the audience is comprised of local North Texas residents and business people.
Although this event targets local club/chapter volunteer leaders of alumni clubs, marketing efforts will be directed towards alumni relations departments of hundreds of colleges and universities as well as directly to local leaders. Recognition of sponsors will be broad.
We LOVE sponsors!! Sponsorships are available and necessary to support this important event. Sponsors are welcome to stay all day and interact with attendees throughout the program. The most valuable times are likely to be during the lunch in the beginning, the coffee break midway through and at the after party happy hour.
