Becoming a Sponsor
The GHA Sponsorship Program is a 12-month, calendar-year program that is open for enrollment each year to a limited number of new sponsors. The number of available spots is partly based on the number of non-renewing sponsors from the prior year. Current sponsors have the first opportunity to renew their enrollment in November. GHA reserves the right to decline sponsorship that is not deemed to be in the best interest of the association or its members.
Note: Memberships and/or sponsorships in GHA’s Society and Council meetings are separate affiliations from the GHA Sponsorship Program and do not imply attendance at the GHA meetings referenced above.
Limited advertising to GHA’s 10,000-member database is an exclusive benefit to GHA Sponsors and GHHS Vendor Partners only.
Some advertising options may be included in the GHA Sponsor Program Brochure.
Any advertising opportunities that may arise will be sent directly to Sponsors and Vendor Partners.
Reminders for Current Sponsors
To attend any GHA meeting, sponsors must register online and must initially SIGN UP for login credentials on the GHA website.
Your log-in credentials (username and password) also provide access to information available only to members and sponsors such as the online membership directory.
GHA Primary Member Meetings
GHA meetings are only open to members, sponsors, GHHS Vendor Partners, and invited guests. We strive to manage a healthy balance of members and sponsors. Each sponsorship level provides a designated amount of representatives to preserve this balance.
Sponsors may be invited to attend additional educational meetings, webinars, or conference calls depending on the subject matter.
Memberships and/or sponsorships in GHA’s Society and Council meetings are separate affiliations from the GHA Sponsorship Program and do not imply attendance at the GHA meetings referenced above.
There are no trade shows at GHA’s Primary Member Meetings although a limited number of table sponsorships (displays) are available for the GHA Annual Summer Meeting, the Center for Rural Health Annual Meeting, and the Patient Safety & Quality Summit. These are only available to GHA Sponsors or GHHS Vendor Partners
All meeting participants (both members and sponsors) MUST REGISTER for each meeting they plan to attend. GHA does not automatically register sponsors.
Meeting registration typically opens on the GHA website three months prior to the meeting.
Upon publication, a meeting brochure and/or registration form will be sent to all GHA Sponsors. (We are moving toward 100 percent online meeting registration. All sponsors must initially SIGN UP for login credentials on our home page.)
Unless otherwise stated as 'complementary,' meeting registration fees apply to both members and sponsors.
