Vital Partner Sponsorship

HRAGD recognizes the vital role that vendor partnerships play within our organization, helping to make programming and other member benefits possible through their financial support and contributions of time, energy and intellectual resources. Over the years, our vendors have been great advocates of HRAGD and the HR profession and their financial support has allowed us to maintain reasonable membership and chapter meeting fees.

The goal of HRAGD is to nurture vendor partnerships that are based upon respect and responsibility. To that end, we have created a variety of offerings, including the Vital Partner Sponsorship program. In order to build mutually satisfying, value-driven relationships, the HRAGD board conducts orientations and/or assigns a board liaison to each vendor partner. The purpose is to educate vendors about HRAGD, including our code of conduct, and to understand the value and needs of our vendors.

We encourage HRAGD members to give consideration to our Vital Partners when business needs arise.

As one of the largest SHRM-affiliated chapters in Michigan with over 800 members, sponsorships provide many ways to reach potential HR clients, including continuing education and networking events that attract a wide array of members. We invite you to review the many benefits of our Vital Partner Sponsorship packages. Vice President of Marketing, Dave Foess, will be happy to discuss the option that best suits your business needs. Dave may be contacted at 877-500-4466 or Convenient payment plans are available.
