How to Sponsor an HJUG Meeting

In order to sponsor a meeting, you need to provide:

  • Some food, such as pizzas
  • Some non-alcoholic refreshments, such as sodas
  • Door prizes or giveaways for attendees are always a big hit, but are not required

In return, you have five minutes at the end of the meeting to talk anything you would like to communicate to our members. You can also freely distribute flyers, brochures, CDs and other promotional items. If you stay after the meeting, you will be able to network with our members.

The number of members varies greatly depending on the topic, the speaker and other considerations. Thank you for your interest in HJUG! Please contact the HJUG Officers if you are interested in sponsoring a meeting.

Ordering Food

Pizza typically works well. It is about $150 - $170 or so for 12 large pizzas and 6 2-liter sodas, and is more than enough to feed 25 people, but just enough for up to 35 when we have a really good turnout, althoug we have been having upwards of 50 people at recent meetings and may require more pizza. We use www.eventbrite.com to take RSVPs to get a rough headcount. Order a mix of cheese, veggie pizza, and pepperoni & sausage as well (1/2 cheese/veggie & half meat topping, or thereabouts). They often discount the price if the pizzas are ordered in advance. Please be sure to ask them to send along paper plates as well.
