Hi [INSERT BOSS NAME],

I know that [INSERT COMPANY NAME] is committed to investing in its people, and I’m pleased to say I’ve found an opportunity that will help me learn and grow in my role.

I was recently accepted into Firneo, an invite-only professional community for BD & Partnerships professionals.  Members include leaders from companies like American Express, Google, Shutterstock, TikTok, Zendesk, Alibaba, IBM, Lyft, and more.

As a member of the community, I’ll get access to expert-led workshops, topical discussions, a members-only discussion forum, and more.  In addition to improving my own skills, there are also clear opportunities to drive an ROI for the company: I’ll be able to open doors more quickly and accelerate our BD efforts by collaborating with fellow members in peer groups and industry groups.

The membership is $495 for the 1st year and renews at $435 per year after that (there is also a monthly membership option).

Please let me know if I can charge this to my credit card for reimbursement, or if you’d prefer for me to have them send an invoice.

Thanks,
[INSERT YOUR NAME]
