Volunteer or Delegate-in-Need Sponsorship
Want to make the ICMI a rip-roaring success? Of course you do! So help us get bums in seats by sponsoring a delegate-in-need. Or help us get the extra hands we need to manage the ICMI’s many, many, many tasks.
This sponsorship level covers partial cost of ticket + accommodation for a Volunteer. Or the cost of a ticket for two Delegates in need. If you want to be put on a list for any available delegate-in-need tickets, please send an email to:

— FAQ — Q: I can’t decide between the Remote Ticket or going to the actual convention! HELP! A: If you’re able to attend the convention then make it a priority, although remote tickets will get a taste of the many flavours of ICMI 2019, you’ll miss out on the exhibit hall, evening events and live access to one of the streams of content(Remote tickets will get access to all content streams afterward.) As well as lots of opportunities to network with fellow men’s issues enthusiasts! In addition your presence at the convention sends a strong message about the support base for men’s rights and men’s issues in our community. If you can, enter meatspace and be counted!
Q: I don’t understand this Speaker Sponsor business, why are there two options? A: If you’re okay with sponsoring any speaker or don’t have a strong preference, just select the Speaker Sponsor level in the fundraiser. You will be matched up with a great speaker. If you DO have a strong preference, then put in a bid to make sure you get an opportunity to chose your speaker before everyone else!
Q: Where is the venue and hotel? A: That information is top secret for now but will be revealed closer to the event date. At that time, please confirm your hotel reservation and details!
Q: What’s the budget? A: Standard ICMI Budget is as follows: Standard ICMI Budget Venue 52k Travel 9.2k Legal/Insurance/Security 2.5k Equipment & Rentals 2.5k Website & Internet 2.5k Speaker fees 1k Misc. 1k Total(rounded up): 71k Badger Bonus Items for ICMI 2019: Swag 5.5k Exhibit 6.8k Event App 2.5k Program Book 5k Total(rounded up): 20k We want to make this the best ICMI yet, with tons of value added features!
Q: Why are you also doing a speaker sponsor and ticket drive? A: We’re projecting a shortfall of between 20 to 40k and I’d like to minimize the financial impact on Honey Badger Radio! 😀
Q: Why have you increased the goal amount?
A: Since we’ve made our initial 15k goal, I want to try for 20k and if we make that goal, we’ll try for 30k, right in the middle of the projected shortfall. And if we make that final goal of 30k, there will be some extra special bonus content the nature of which will be announced once we finish the second goal!
Q: Why did the amount go down!?
There’s a bug in the plugin where cancelled or failed pledges are added to the fundraiser. If you see the fundraiser go down, it’s because I’ve removed pledges that didn’t actually get applied to the fundraiser!
1)With consent of speaker!
2)And if it isn’t tasteful, it better be funny.
3)As of July 15th, complimentary t-shirt is no longer available.
Complimentary t-shirt will only be available as a bonus till July 15th.
4)Swag ships after the conference. Do NOT choose “free shipping” if you want your physical rewards.
Honey Badger Brigade Inc. is a for-profit company incorporated nationally in Canada and the host for ICMI 2019. We are underwriting the event and thus responsible for any shortfall. Any surplus will go towards hosting future community events, either physical or virtual.
