Sample email text to announce the relationship and encourage participation:

Hi everyone,

(Org Name) has just become a sponsor of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Center for Information Systems Research (MIT CISR). Recognized as the leading research institution in all things IT management related, MIT CISR has one clear focus—researching how organizations get business value through digitization.

As a member of MIT CISR’s sponsorship community, we have access to their research findings. Covering the hottest topics in the industry—Digital Ecosystems, Digital Workplace, Digital Organizations, Business Complexity, Big Data, and Engaging Your Board in Digitization—their research briefings, working papers, and presentation materials are thought provoking and inspiring. Importantly, they are succinct and to the point, making them easily digestible.

Across the topics above, you will find an excellent range of MIT CISR papers, and I invite you to go to the link below to the MIT CISR site and follow the simple, quick instructions to register yourself for access to the site. Make sure you choose our organization from the drop-down list under “Patron/Sponsor Organization” and use your work email account to register. They will send you an email link to activate your registration before you can log on for the first time. Once registered, you will have access to all the MIT CISR research publications and will automatically receive a new MIT CISR research briefing announcement via email on the third Thursday of each month.

Take a good look around the site. I am sure you will find the information extremely valuable.
