Throughout the year, MIBOR offers affiliate members the opportunity to sponsor events and various elements of New Member Orientation. This is a great way to further leverage your REALTOR®, as this is only available to MIBOR members.
Collaboration between MIBOR and sponsoring affiliate partners is beneficial to both MIBOR affiliates and REALTOR® members – REALTOR® members become connected to new resources and gain knowledge regarding some of the many options available to them and their clients.
New Member Orientation Sponsorship
MIBOR hosts an orientation for new REALTOR® members of MIBOR on the first Thursday of every month (may vary due to scheduling conflicts). New Member Orientation takes place over one day with presentations about MIBOR and the services provided to members, the Broker Listing Cooperative® and its uses, as well as a required Code of Ethics course that each member must complete to be considered a REALTOR®. Each orientation typically hosts between 50-90 new members.
Each month, New Member Orientation includes two sponsorship opportunities: a breakfast and lunch sponsor. Cost of sponsorship of breakfast is $750 and sponsorship of lunch is $750.
Sponsorship includes the opportunity to be on-site at the orientation to provide marketing materials and meet new members, sign recognition, and logo inclusion on follow up emails. Short speaking opportunities are also included, if sponsoring more than one breakfast or lunch.
Sponsorship opportunities fill quickly, and currently, there is only one sponsorship left in 2019 for New Member Orientation. Once that has been filled, a wait-list will begin for 2020 sponsorship opportunities.
Thank you to our 2019 sponsors:
- Near North Title
- First Option Mortgage
- Stewart Title
- Housemaster and Fairway Mortgage
- WIN Home Inspection
- Heritage Christian School
