The Sponsorship Committee’s mission is to provide due diligence around potential iMasons sponsors, especially regarding relationships to iMasons board members and leaders. The committee reviews all significant proposed sponsorships and makes recommendations to the board about whether a potential sponsorship offer should be accepted by iMasons. Recommendations and the backup information for making them are documented and archived by the Sponsorship Committee and can be reviewed in the event of any questions regarding the acceptability of a given iMasons-sponsor-fiduciary relationship.
