Sponsorship

The Minnesota Academy of Audiology (MAA) sincerely appreciates the support of our annual activities, including the Upper Midwest Audiology Conference and the MAA Hearing Screening Booth at the Minnesota State Fair. This sponsorship structure is meant to reduce the number of monetary solicitations you will receive from MAA in a given year.  Future contact may only be necessary in cases of volunteered time or equipment.  The following is a brief description of some of the MAA events throughout the year which your sponsorship helps to support, as well as the listing of comprehensive sponsorship packages with their associated benefits which help to promote your company to consumers and the audiology community.

The Minnesota State Fair  Millions of Minnesotans, including Minnesota audiologists, spend a day at the Minnesota State Fair every year. At the Fair MAA provides hearing screenings, video otoscopy, education and awareness, ear plugs and hearing aid batteries. Sponsors can also market their business by signing up for a sponsorship package or donating equipment or time to the MAA state fair booth.

Newsletter Advertising  MAA's newsletter is distributed three times per year, to more than 200 MAA members. Sponsors have the opportunity to advertise their company to all of those Audiologists in each newsletter. If you want to catch the eyes of Minnesota Audiologists more than three times a year, website banners are also available as part of a benefit package for sponsorship.

Scholarships for Students with Hearing Impairments
  MAA supports the Gloria Gross Scholarship Fund, which helps high school seniors with hearing impairment by raising money at a silent auction held at the Conference. We appreciate any donations to this auction, including gift certificates, baskets, sporting event tickets, equipment or other items and all proceeds go to the Scholarship Fund.
