Additional Information

Oregon SQLSaturday 2011 is produced by and for the community of SQL developers, administrators, and affiliated disciplines. Event sponsorship does not entail oversight or selection of topics or content.

Payments to, and accounting for the event is OregonSQL, an IRS 503(c)3 educational charity. Credit card payments can be made online using Paypal. or checks can be sent to the address on this form.

While Oregon SQLSaturday requires funds to operate, sponsorship is also accepted in the form of in-kind contributions where the goods or services provided are those required for SQLSaturday. We are especially interested in community groups helping plan and publicize the event. If you have any questions about how you can help, please contact us.

Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Marquee Sponsors will receive a csv list of the 'opt-in' attendees.

About in-kind sponsorships:

We make a distinction between Sponsor that provide ‘cash’, and those that provide Products and Services. Our reasoning is thus:

A ‘cash’ sponsor is providing the raw resource that is needed in order to produce SQLSaturday –it pays facility rents, provides equipment, as well as refreshments and meals. Therefore, that sponsor earns significant brand recognition and exposure benefits, as outlined in the Sponsorship ‘level’ document (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Marquee, etc.)

A Products/Services sponsor is providing an optional resource –one that if need be, we can do without. Also, quite often, that optional resource is in itself serving to provide brand recognition and exposure. At past events, in order to maximize their brand exposure, some Sponsors have done both –sponsored at a cash level that was practical for them, AND provided branded items. Those Sponsors then received both sets of benefits as outlined above.

Thank you for supporting Oregon SQLSaturday 2011!
