Sponsorship Benefits



CKMN members are manufacturing companies.  These companies often require the resources of non-manufacturing organizations and those organizations desire visibility and connection with the manufacturers.  CKMN provides non-manufacturers the opportunity to become Sponsors or Partners to meet those needs.

Sponsors are for-profit businesses who provide products and services to manufacturers.

Partners are educational institutions, government entities and nonprofit organizations who work with and provide services to manufacturers.

As an association focused on manufacturers, we limit the number of sponsors and partners who are allowed to participate in CKMN.
