What is new with the MSRC?

Companies that are interested in becoming a National or Premier level sponsor are currently going through the MSRC pilot process.

What comes next?

The MSRC will submit a report, after the one-year pilot, to the Board of Directors containing its recommendations on the potential sponsor evaluation process and forms, including feedback from DPGs and MIGs. After submission of the MSRC's report to the Board and the Board's final decision, any changes or updates to the Academy's sponsorship program will occur at that time.

Has the MSRC reviewed any new potential sponsors?

The MSRC has reviewed and recommended that the Board approve one new potential Academy Premier Sponsor. Information about the sponsor may be found on the Advertising and Sponsorship section of the Academy’s website.

What is happening with the Academy's sponsorship program?

The Academy continues to work with organizations that help the Academy fulfill its mission and vision, and adheres to the Board-approved Academy Guidelines for Corporate Sponsors.
