We are pleased to announce a new “Friends of SMPTE-NY” initiative designed to make the Section financially self-sustaining and more effective in delivering benefits to members.

**Commencing immediately, individuals, end-users, broadcasters, integrators, and manufacturer organizations may become "Friends of SMPTE-NY.
Perhaps most importantly, the Section will no longer have to solicit sponsors for each and every meeting. This will allow us to conduct a greater number of unsponsored “tutorial” style meetings and unburden meeting producers from fund-raising.
Note: your “Friends of SMPTE NY” sponsorship renews on your anniversary date, so there’s no reason to wait until the next Holiday Party in order to start receiving the benefits of sponsorship!
Since not all of our prospective Friends have the same size or financial ability, we are offering two tiers:
|Tier||Business Size||Annual Cost||Discounted Party Tickets||Party Ticket Discount||Ticket Price|
|Platinum||>25 Employees||$495||Max 6||50%||$75.00|
|Gold||<25 Employees||$245||Max 3||50%||$75.00|
Holiday Party Benefits / Terms
NOTE: Manufacturers, reps. dealers, sales people, system integrators and others in similar “selling” categories in the industry must sponsor in order to attend the Holiday Party. These categories cannot attend free as SMPTE Members.
We’ve put a great deal of thought and planning into this initiative and feel it will benefit everyone involved at a small cost easily absorbed in a typical expense account.
Thanks for your continued support of SMPTE NY.
