The answer is a lot, because these are dynamic and unique programs, the evolution of which is a high priority so that inances are in place, not only to fund all College activities which are ever increasing, but also the educational and humanitarian projects that take place internationally. he College is growing in numbers with the addition of new charter Regions of Section XX in southern Africa, Egypt and Sudan. All of this requires processing in the College Oice, which of course takes considerable time and manpower. he resources for funding these, and the many other essential activities of the College, cannot be met solely from the revenue from annual dues, and therefore we have to devise new and sustainable methods of inancing. In speaking to a marketing strategist, the message was succinct. We need three things, and we are working on them: 1. A prospect list itemizing potential sponsors 2. A Sales Force (Fellows) with good commercial contacts 3. A Sales/Value proposition, in other words, giving the company a good return on investment Corporate Partnership Expands with Silver Sponsor Level Last year, a task force was set up to speciically look at non- dues revenue, chaired by International Councilor Argirios Pissiotis from Greece, whose indings suggested the Diamond Sponsor program should become part of a broader Corporate Partnership Program. his would accommodate for the addition of new categories for more sponsorship levels. Each level would be identiied by the amount of funding and package of beneits. I am happy to announce our irst Silver Sponsor, Spident Co. Ltd. Spident was founded in 1997 as manufacturers of Gutta Percha and absorbent points, as well as endodontic, restorative and VPS impression materials with customers in over 70 countries and posting 11 million sales volume. Another aspect of this type of sponsorship is the question of tax relief. While giving to the GVF is tax allowable in the USA under 501 (c)(3) regulations, giving to the Corporate Partnership Program does not receive such beneit but it is generally considered a business expense that can be deducted. ICD Welcomes our New Diamond Sponsor his year we welcome a new Diamond Sponsor, the Modern Dental Group, which is based in Hong Kong and was facilitated by ICD Fellow Dr. William Cheung. he Modern Dental Group is a leading global prosthetic device provider with a focus on providing custom-made prostheses to customers in the growing prosthetic industry. he company was represented in Denver by the head of its American division, Mr. Mike Gerard, and he addressed the Council meeting in Denver.
