The Affinity Program

If you are an itSMF USA member or LIG leader, the Affinity Program represents a great value and opportunity for you. Members of our vendor community are generously presenting you with an opportunity to receive a service or product at no cost or at a reduced rate based on your membership in itSMF USA. You should take advantage of these offers and recognize the contribution of our vendor community when you do so.

If you are a vendor, the Affinity Program represents a great opportunity to get your company, product or service in front of our over 18,000 members and meeting attendees. This program creates a "level playing field" so that all interested vendors have an equal opportunity to present their offer to our membership and our Local Interest Groups.

Instructions for itSMF USA Members and LIG/CoI Leaders:

Please click on "View Offers" button on the right and review the available offers from our vendor community.

Please note the offer type and restrictions listed. Some offers may be available only for LIGs (to be offered to all LIG Members or to be used in a LIG Meeting) and some may be only available to individual members. Offers may also contain other restrictions, such as limits based on geography, company size, etc. When you have found an offer that looks of value, please click on the title to view the detail page. If you would like to take advantage of the offer, please contact the offering vendor directly following the instructions provided. Please note that inclusion in the Affinity Program does not represent an endorsement by itSMF USA. All services are provided directly by the offering vendor and all members and LIG leaders should apply appropriate due diligence in evaluating any offer.

Instructions for Vendors:

Participation in the Affinity Program also subjects you to the itSMF USA Code of Ethics and itSMF USA reserves the right to remove any or all offers from the program, at its sole discretion, based upon violation of this Code of Ethics.
