Thanks to everyone who expressed interest in the Associate Sponsorship spot that opened up yesterday. While we can't please everyone, our historical practice has been to concede the opening to the vendor that commits first via email or phone (followed by a contract). We received a commitment for the current opening about an hour ago.
I'll admit, this approach is far from perfect and we apologize to those who were interested but did not commit first (including all who had scheduled calls to discuss the opportunity or to ask clarifying questions). We are currently investigating ways of allowing potential sponsors to reserve and commit to vacancies before they become available but without establishing a paid waiting list (a solution I'm not considering).
