The value and benefits of the OAV Partner program far exceed the cost. Plus, the program eliminates the repetitive solicitation of funds for every event and marketing opportunity. This not only saves you time, but it also allows the Association to operate in a more efficient and professional manner. For your annual contribution, your business receives community exposure, event benefits and cost-effective advertising.
Your annual contribution of only $500 to participate in our Sponsorship Partner Program offers the following partner benefits, over $1500 value, to your company for the upcoming year.
Visibility Throughout the Year
- A listing of our partners for the year of partnership is displayed on the front page of our website. A direct link from your logo on the main page connects Virginia Opticians to your information page that may include information about your company, how to contact local representatives and anything else you would like visitors to know.
- Quarterly OAV newsletters devote a separate page to listing our partners. They include a request to our membership to support you, the vendors who support us.
