Fortifying Agency-Client Relationships: RSA and the City of Box Elder

As a small, locally-owned business ourselves, Robert Sharp & Associates understands the immense time that goes into planning and hosting a successful event. We work with clients all throughout the year to help plan events such as the Central States Fair, Heart Ball, The South Dakota State Fair, and most recently added to our roster Patriot Day.

At RSA, we want each and every one of our clients to be successful, and we go above and beyond to do everything in our power to make sure that happens. So, when RSA was approached by the City of Box Elder to sponsor their upcoming Patriot Day celebration, our CEO Robert Sharp had an idea. Instead of becoming a paid sponsor of their event, RSA decided that we would help them market Patriot Day to the public. Our agency has a long-term relationship with the City of Box Elder and has worked with them on many projects. To us, this was a way to not only help support a wonderful event, but also build an even stronger relationship with our client.
