Sponsorship Information

Dear Potential Sponsor,

Allow me to formally thank you for your interest and consideration in supporting UNT NABA. UNT NABA is a student chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants, Inc., an American nonprofit professional association that represents more than 100,000 people of color in furthering their educational and professional goals in accounting, consulting, finance, and information technology. Our chapter is based at the University Of North Texas – College Of Business in Denton. Our mission is to help transition student members from the classroom to the professional workforce with the tools needed to be successful in their professions and communities.

UNT NABA is composed of various business majors mainly in the accounting, finance, and information technology fields. Last year was a year of evolution for our chapter. We are consistently growing membership levels and graduating from a small chapter to mid-sized chapter classification within NABA. As such, we are evolving our image and increasing our activities at UNT. We have budgeted projects for our chapter such as participation in our regional conference, increased participation in community service activities, professional networking events with potential employers, and the maintaining of a new website for our chapter. We believe that projects such as these will help us to fulfill our mission more effectively. With these new projects in mind, we are asking for sponsors to partner with us through financial contributions in the upcoming school year.

We appreciate all of our contributors, large and small, and would like to acknowledge you all. We are offering various levels of recognition for different contribution levels, each with increasing benefits. Sponsors will be given tokens of our appreciation, as well as being listed on our website. Our meetings are held on Tuesdays at 5pm during fall and spring semesters. Our meetings are excellent networking opportunities for our members and recruiters. 

The following pages will outline our history, member accomplishments, and some key elements of our sponsorship levels. If you are interested in partnering with us or have any questions, please contact me with the contact information below. Thank you once again for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Kimberly Powell

President
