About our sponsorship opportunities
As an information-sharing and networking initiative, InfraGard serves the interests and combines the subject-matter expertise of a wide range of members. At its most basic level, InfraGard is a partnership between the FBI and private and public sector individuals. InfraGard members represent businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies, and other participants dedicated to sharing information and intelligence to prevent hostile acts against the United States. InfraGard “Chapters” are geographically linked with FBI Field Office territories and are a partnership between private sector-led InfraGard Members Alliances (“IMAs”) and the FBI. InfraGard Tampa Bay Members Alliance Inc. is one of those IMAs or Chapters.
The InfraGard Tampa Bay Chapter covers Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and the surrounding countries and all 16 of the currently-defined DHS critical infrastructure sectors as well as four locally-designated sectors. Our Chapter is continually growing and has over 800 members governed by our Board of Directors.
Your financial support will enable us to achieve these important objectives. We hope that you will consider sponsoring our Chapter at one of the levels described on the attached summary sheet. Our guiding philosophy in acquiring financial support is to form a long-term relationship of mutual benefit to both InfraGard and its sponsors. Accordingly, your sponsorship will be in effect for one year from the date our Chapter receives your sponsorship application and your sponsorship funds.
