Become a Pledge Partner

Become a Pledge Partner as an Individual or Sponsor

Individual

We are making a change in the way we have been handling membership in the APDA Midwest Chapter. Over the years, from the time you became a member, your membership renewed during the month you first became a member. As you can imagine, with all the memberships we have, tracking and mailing renewals each month is a cumbersome, time consuming, and costly process.

The Midwest Chapter has made the decision to update to an annual pledge, allowing us to send out all pledges at one time, making the process much easier to manage and allowing us to save money at the same time. We are asking you to become a Pledge Partner with the APDA Midwest Chapter for 2016. Please consider making your donation to the APDA Midwest Chapter at this time by becoming a Pledge Partner. Your donation will enable us to plan services and educational seminars for 2016.

This will be the only pledge you will receive this year from the Midwest Chapter. As mentioned, you will not receive a membership renewal in the month that your membership has renewed in the past. We thank you in advance for your thoughtful and generous pledge.

Sponsor

The APDA Midwest Chapter is changing the way we ask for event support and sponsorship from our major sponsors. We know that coming to you for sponsorship a couple times a year takes time away from your business activities. We would like to streamline this process for you as well as for us. By becoming a Pledge Partner, you will only need to fill out sponsorship forms and insurance certificate one time and submit them within your own company as well as with the APDA Midwest Chapter. In securing an annual pledge in the beginning of our fiscal year, we will be better able to plan and deliver services and educational seminars. In addition, you will be able to plan for these events in advance on your calendars. We hope you find this advantageous to supporting our educational programs and Optimism Walk. Please contact us at (630) 933-4392 with any questions you may have. Thank you.
