The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), a national organization representing the vast majority of podiatrists in the United States, respectfully requests your consideration of sponsorship for the 30th Annual Kaplan-Clarke-Foster Golf Tournament & Practice Management Seminar, which has been scheduled as follows:
September 11–15, 2019 * French Lick Resort, French Lick, IN
In the 30-year history of the event, we have raised more than $800,000 in support of APMA Protecting Our Profession (APMA POP, formerly the APMA Government Education Fund).
The APMA Protecting Our Profession (APMA POP) is a separate segregated source of financial resources used for federal legislative education, lobbying initiatives, and legislative issue awareness. APMA POP provides funding for approximately 50 percent of the annual Podiatric Medical Legislative Conference, as well as other public awareness initiatives. These funds cannot be used to support candidates for federal office.
The POP receives all of its funding from the donations of APMA members, component societies, and corporations. Individual and corporate contributions are welcome and requested.
The 30th Annual Kaplan-Clarke-Foster Golf Tournament & Practice Management Seminar will take place September 11–15 at French Lick Resort in French Lick, IN. The event will offer practice management content encompassing aspects of foot and ankle care. Now in its 30th year, the event sees an average of 45 participants, the majority of whom represent leadership from state and national podiatric medical societies affiliated with APMA. Sponsorships received are applied to lobbying and legislative education activities of APMA, specifically the annual Podiatric Medical Legislative Conference held in Washington, DC, and cover general meeting expenses for the event. No sponsorship dollars may be used to support candidates for federal elective office. Sponsorship opportunities are available for non-continuing education programs.
Listed below are the sponsorship levels available and applicable sponsorship benefits:
We also have a limited number of small sponsorship spots available.
Established in 1912, APMA is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit membership association and is the nation’s leading professional society for foot and ankle physicians and surgeons. We confidently approach our second century of service, knowing that we have gained significant ground in having the profession seen as an integral member of a medical team in hospitals, clinics, and offices across the country; in the legislative arena, in member and consumer education; and in the area of public and private insurance. We are grateful for your consideration of support for this sponsorship request for the 30th Annual Kaplan-Clarke-Foster Golf Tournament & Practice Management Seminar.
