Corporate Sponsors

This is an opportunity for corporations to lend additional support beyond being a member of ASMR. This is not the same as being a sponsor of our annual meetings. Early years during the development of the Society, it was very important for companies to financially assist the Society but in recent years corporate support had decreased. Corporate Sponsors are now a way these companies currently support our annual meetings, which is greatly appreciated.

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities / General Statement

The American Society of Mining and Reclamation is proud of its accomplishments over the past four decades. We believe we have made a valuable contribution to improvements in land reclamation procedures and technology nationally and internationally. However, the Society seeks to initiate new programs that benefit its members and expand opportunities for information exchange with those concerned with land reclamation worldwide.

One new program being considered is the Development Fund. Proceeds from annual dues are not adequate for significant expansion of our programs. We appreciate the role and contributions that corporate entities have made to assist us in this endeavor by becoming Corporate Sponsors of the American Society of Mining and Reclamation. If you or your company is interested in becoming a corporate sponsor, contact the Executive Secretary:  rdarmody@illinois.edu

Visit the four levels of sponsorship (Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum) for current and past corporations who have contributed in this important way to the Society. The benefits for each level of Corporate Sponsorship are listed under Program.

Corporate Sponsors - Program / Program Benefits

The focus of Corporate Sponsors has changed in recent years from that fulfilling the general needs of the Society to assisting in the operation budget of the National Conferences as well as assisting with the expenses of the annual meetings. When there are greater amounts of income generated at our annual meetings, and upon approval by the National Executive Council (NEC), these funds are allocated to other areas such as listed below. Programs that have benefited from this support in the past and continue to be supported include:

Student Activities

  1. Increase the Memorial Scholarship Fund, supporting university scholarships at bachelor, master, and PhD levels.
  2. Increase the Student Travel Fund, which provides financial support for students presenting oral or poster papers at our National Conferences.
  3. Provide recognition of outstanding student presentations at ASMR National Meetings
  4. Contributing to programs initiated by the ASMR student chapters supporting local student club activities.

Young Professionals

  1. Providing funds to partially support activities at the National meetings
  2. Establishment of small research grants to students. This project is yet to be funded.
