Sponsorship Opportunities

About Sponsorship

Companies and agencies looking to raise their profile with the large network of diabetes practitioners, registered dietitian nutritionists, and nutrition advocates in the state of Wisconsin should consider sponsorship of WAND.

WAND seeks companies, organizations, and individuals whose views align with our mission and vision, as well as whose products and services are of interest to our membership. A variety of choices for sponsorship opportunities are offered to fit every budget.

A Message from WAND's President and President-Elect

As a sponsor of WAND, your business/program gains statewide exposure while expressing support for the activities of WAND to improve health and healthcare of Wisconsinites. This provides you with the unique opportunity to meet WAND members and enhance the content and quality of learning opportunities that WAND provides our members.

The WAND members believe relations with sponsors are not about promoting their products and services, but rather about creating nutrition messages that people can understand and act upon to improve their health as well as their families and communities. WAND considers our vision and mission in all decisions, including whether to enter into a relationship with an outside company and/or organization.

WAND Board of Directors members are committee to providing qualified speakers and sponsoring seminars on food, nutrition, and dietetic related issues for professional and community groups; conducting conferences to promote continuing education for our members and allied health professional; and for affiliate to function as a reliable nutrition information resource for the public.

Thank you for your consideration in becoming a sponsor for WAND and supporting our association.
