OSAP Partnerships | Mission & Strategic

Discover New Value Through Your OSAP Membership Investment

OSAP Mission PartnerOSAP partnerships - whether Mission Partners or Strategic Partners - bring you more value for your membership investment. You receive exclusive member discounts or significant savings on essential OSAP marketing, business products and services as part of the program.

The OSAP partnership program was developed to provide associations with critical products and services at a member discount. Since many associations are small businesses and do not have the budgets to employ staff in critical areas, including human resources, legal, financial planning, information technology, marketing, etc., OSAP partners fill a void  at tremendous savings to you.

More importantly, these partners supply OSAP with ongoing educational support to benefit members. You’ll see informational articles in The Industry Advocate and Industry Brief and appearances by our partners at OSAP events, including luncheon meetings, workshops and roundtables.

If you have interest in becoming a Mission or Strategic Partner, contact Jarrod today!
