Become a Sponsor
One of the primary goals of the Austin Java Users Group is to provide an environment where technical people can share ideas without requiring formal membership or dues. This has been made possible through the generous contributions of the sponsors on this page. This format has been received very well. The group now has over 1700 members on the mailing list and the monthly meetings are very well attended.
As you can imagine, coordinating and running the events takes time and money. Our hope is that we can spread this across several group sponsors so that no one company has all of the burden or control of the JUG. If this is done successfully, we should be able to provide a beneficial group at no cost to the individual members.
The sponsor is primarily responsible for providing funds to support the meeting and optionally lining up a speaker. Sponsors will be provided with help from the AustinJUG to and provide refreshments. To pay for all this, the sponsor will be asked to contribute $1000. This fee covers not only the event that evening but some money is set aside for unsponsored meetings and to keep the website running. For hosting an event a sponsor will of course be able to promote their products and services at the meeting. They will also be listed on the AustinJUG website indefinitely and promoted actively on the website for a year.
If you or your company would be interested in sponsoring an event, please contact Rob Ratcliff. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!
