The SMBA proudly acknowledges our sponsors upon whose support we are able to bring the community together in ever increasing ways, making it accessible and affordable for every member of our community.

We are pleased to announce that the SMBA is now offering sponsorship for its 2017 events.  We realize that you may plan your budgets annually, well in advance of our events, and want to provide you with ample notice of upcoming sponsorship opportunities. 

As you know, your sponsorship of our events is essential to the financial success of our organization and allows you to remind our members of your valuable services.  More specifically, by sponsoring our events, you can access an array of marketing and advertising options for your organization.  From logos and click-through links on our digital announcements, oral and written recognition at our events, to links on our website, you reach close to 2000 recipients.  As our association grows and our events continue to increase in popularity, a larger audience will become available to you.

The SMBA will be hosting annual events with available sponsorships including:  The After Holiday Party; Judges’ Night; The Summer Party; and The Fall Installation Dinner.  In addition to these annual events, we have sponsorships available for our two annual athletic events (the Bench & Bar Bike Ride and the tennis tournament), our monthly First Friday MCLE lunch (20-30 attendees), and our monthly networking mixer, The Toast (50-75 attendees). 

If you have any questions, or would like further information about any of the available sponsorships, please feel free to contact either of us below or Ms. McCartney-Clark at or 310-450-9280.    To secure your sponsorships, you can select your event through our website where you can directly sponsor the event. For additional sponsoring options, please contact our SMBA Executive Administrator Jan McCartney-Clark at or complete the form for payment here and email it to us.  In addition to your payment, please submit your logo (JPG (preferred format), GIF or PNG) to the SMBA Administrator at and identify the website address to which you want your logo to link.  Please note that the SMBA cannot accept split sponsorships.  Sponsorship rates are subject to change until payment is received.

Diamond Website Sponsor

In addition to sponsoring annual events, athletic events, and monthly events, we will for the first time ever offer a sponsorship of our website.  The Santa Monica Bar Association is proud to announce that it has modernized its website to provide the best services to our legal community.  Some of its new features include:  a more streamlined method for joining the SMBA; a more streamlined process for sponsoring and registering for events; and a membership directory with links to members’ websites.  In addition to the Events page to announce and register for SMBA events, there is a News blog to announce news of members and non-attorney affiliates and their activities within the community.  This $2,000 sponsorship will help pay the hosting and administrative costs of the official SMBA website.  In return, the SMBA will recognize the website sponsor publicly with their name, logo and website link featured on the official SMBA home page, as well as prominently displayed on the Sponsors webpage. Website integration may also be available upon request and compatibility.
