With Zycus, a former Associate Sponsor, stepping up to a Lead Sponsor position on Spend Matters, a vacancy has opened up for a new Associate Sponsor. In the past year, Associate Sponsor slots have often been taken before we've had the opportunity to advertise them on Spend Matters because of the quick actions of those who wanted to know as soon as possible when one became available. But given the unique circumstances this time around, we did not have much of an opportunity to let potential candidates know about the opening. I suspect this opening will not last long. If you'd like to learn more about the benefits of Associate Sponsorship, please drop me, William Busch, Spend Matters VP of Business Development, a line: wbusch (at) spendmatters (dot) com.
Despite a continued increase in traffic and reach on Spend Matters, we are keeping the pricing for Associate Sponsorship at the same level as when we launched the program in 2008. We will also continue to limit the number of Associate Sponsors to 8. So if you want it, please be in touch asap.
