BUILDOUT CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP

Welcome to what may be one of most important elements of the BuildOUT California (BOC) website – our Associate engagement page! The Founders and Board of Directors of BOC have taken great care in designing what we believe is a ‘pathway to success’ for each of our key stakeholder communities. Whether you are a student focused on a STEM-related major, a member of an LGBT Employee Group at a large firm, a LGBT or Allied Contractor/Consultant or a company who wishes to invest in a more inclusive and equitable workforce/pool of qualified subcontractors – we have something specifically designed to meet your needs.

 

Registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(6) organization we have developed the varying levels of engagement with scalability in mind. Each of the benefits of Association with BOC has been built with the mindset that in order to grow the LGBT/Allied built community we need to start from the beginning where the entrepreneurial spirit first takes flight to actively supporting those successful businesses who need the mentorship to achieve the next level of profitability, capacity, and business acumen.

 

No matter where you fall in the spectrum of LGBT/Allied Associates – we invite you to join us in this historic journey in building a dynamic, resourceful, and successful community of professionals, entrepreneurs, executives, subject matter experts and business owners. Share in our passion to create win-win strategies/programs that create jobs, wealth, and community empowerment!

BECOME A ASSOCIATE PARTNER

The Associate Partner category, which other business organizations would call a Corporate Sponsorship level, is very important to BuildOUT California because it is our intention to elevate and engage small, medium and large businesses for this sector of our stakeholder audience. Our Associate Partner category has levels of engagement from $2,500 to $500,000 which is significant in the LGBT business community. After all, California is the world's fifth largest economy so our Associate Partner category needs to break new ground as well.

 

Each of the levels within this category will have customized benefits of engagement that will include mentorship, collaboration on social and media relations efforts, C-Suite/Executive-level interaction and access to resources unique to each partner.  Each of our BuildOUT California Development team members have over 25 years of experience in developing award-winning engagement programs for small businesses to Fortune 50-type firms. These Associate Level partnerships will be intentional, measurable and forward-thinking. 

 

We invite you to reach out to BuildOUT California so that a customized partnership program can be developed to create multiple win-win opportunities for all our stakeholder audiences. In turn we will communicate these success to local, regional, statewide and national media outlets through our highly effective communication channels.

 

Join us as we build this economic engine into a world-class industry association that California, the nation and the build community can be proud of!
