Bruce Rosenthal – Corporate Sponsorship Consultant, Advisor and Educator – will offer a presentation and lead a discussion on how to ramp up corporate sponsorships. Beginning with the premise that service providers are faced with revenue shortages and companies are scrutinizing their sponsorship expenditures, Rosenthal will explain the changing sponsorship landscape and how UMA members can leverage sponsorships to increase revenue and constituent value.
