"Without a doubt, ICAISA is our most important sponsorship engagement each year.  We seek far more than simply access to a sales pipeline.  We want to be a part of thoughtful conversations with internationally respected association leaders about industry-wide issues and challenges.  These interactions allow us to listen, to learn, and to identify emerging market needs and opportunities.  We come to ICAISA not to accelerate new sales but rather to improve our services.  Working with Bonnie, the executive director, has been a true delight, for she has taken the time to learn about our business, develop a customized sponsorship package, and identify exactly the right events and sequences for us to engage with the ICAISA community of executive directors. We look forward to building on this partnership for years to come."
--Gabriel Lucas, Principal, 12M Recruiting
