1. Obtain A Sponsor
in order for a brand to be considered for presentation at a NIDA Meeting, the brand should communicate with a NIDA Member who is willing to sponsor.
2. Complete a New Brand Questionnaire
After a sponsor is secured, complete and submit the New Brand Questionnaire found here. The Presentation Committee will review the questionnaire and contact the Brand with any additional questions.
3. Schedule a Presentation
Once the New Brand Questionnaire has been approved by the Presentation Committee, the brand will be contacted to coordinate a date and time when the opportunity will be given for the Brand to present to the NIDA Membership during one of the 5 regularly scheduled meetings throughout the year.
4. Make Payment
30 days prior to the scheduled presentation, the Brand must remit a $2000.00 presentation fee to the NIDA Treasurer.
5. Make The Pitch
Presenters have 1 hour to make presentations. Presentations should be as informative as possible and use of the NIDA projector is included in the fee. Most presenters allocate time for Q&A.
6. Feedback & Follow Up
At the conclusion of the presentation, immediate, real-time feedback including a list of distributors who are interested in the brand will be given. It is then the responsibility of the Brand to contact those individual distributors to conduct further discussions.
