STRATEGIC ALLIANCES COMMITTEE CHAIR:
The overall responsibility of the Strategic Alliance committee is to develop and direct all sponsorship activities and advertising sales. The committee also identifies revenue-generating opportunities to support the chapter. It’s reaching out to the meeting & event community in San Diego to secure venues, sponsorship and advertising for our chapter throughout the year. Typically committees meet face-to-face once a month to discuss strategy and our specific responsibilities within the chapter’s business plan, but we also communicate the rest of the time through email and phone to help each other reach our committee’s and chapter’s goals.
