Business Support Committee
(Group Buying & Sponsorship)
Current Chair: Doug Brockelman
This committee meets once each month, August through May. With guidance from member surveys, this committee identifies and monitors Buying Partners for the TDMAW benefit.
- Locate companies that offer high quality services and/or products and will offer discounted rates to members
- Partner location, or the ability to service most members on a timely basis
- Companies that will rebate the TDMAW a percentage of member sales or offer scholarships
The committee may, on occasion, contract with a third party to assist in negotiations with potential partners. Once a partner is secured, the consultant follows up on complaints, and suggests ways to promote the member/partner relationship.
Prior to investigations of a potential partner, prospects are asked to complete a Prospective Partner Questionnaire. Leads are approved by the Committee.
The committee hosts an annual Partner Expo (in place of a regular monthly membership meeting).
