This topic came up during the swap planning discussion. So looks like we have several members who have stepped up to the task of being sponsor liaisons. Seems important to have some basic guidelines as to what is a sponsor, what do they provide, and what do we provide. Would be awkward if each liaison told their vendor different things. What's been done previously with sponsors? Apparently they get a banner. Anything else? "Commercial announcements" during our swaps saying, "thank you to XYZ for the generous frag donations"? Do they donate a set amount of "stuff" to the club? Is it on a regular basis, or just one time? Do liaisons just go to each vendor and hit them up for "protection money"? As far as frag/colony donations for swaps and raffles, is there a typical amount that vendors contribute? Whatever they feel like? What's the range for donations? More than one frag of brown zoo and less than 20 colonies of LE corals? What do people tell vendors if they're asked, "What would you like me to donate?"?
