Media Partnership:
There are many informative events happening throughout Kansas City and SMCKC is happy to help promote those events, whether conferences, seminars or fundraisers. The promotion for those events will happen through SMCKC’s digital channels. We ask that bullet points of content are provided to assist with social post creation. Live-event tweeting is a facet of the partnership, helping bring the insights of the event to the over 9,800 followers on the smckc Twitter account. To facilitate the live-tweeting aspect of the event, SMCKC asks for 1-2 comp tickets for smckc board members who will be attending.

In exchange for this promotion, we also ask for a smckc member discount for the event. The nature of that discount is up for discussion, but a general starting point is 10% of the event ticket price.
