MISBO's Awesome COnsortium partners

MISBO consortium partner resource page

From the Desk of Susan Kimmel

Director of the purchasing consortium

As we jump into May and the upcoming retirement of Jay Danielson, I want to thank all who have reached out to me with congratulations on my new role here at MISBO. I know the shoes I must fill, and they are big ones. Many of you have worked with Jay for years, and in some cases decades. He will be missed. His knowledge of our schools and their needs is outstanding. His curation and development of our purchasing consortium has left a legacy I hope to expand on. I have created a calendar to schedule time for us to meet and included a link below. Please take a moment to schedule some time to introduce yourself if we haven’t met yet, or to catch up if we have. I look forward to chatting!

In the meantime, if you haven’t already, please reach out to Jay at jaydanielson@misbo.com to wish him well. His last day at MISBO will be May 13, 2022.

Corporate and Social Initiatives Survey

We have started a new program at MISBO to highlight our Consortium Partners and their corporate and social initiatives. Our mission is to “connect independent school professionals and deliver exceptional value to enrich learning.” At MISBO, we feel it is important for our members to understand that the companies we partner with want to make a difference in this world. If you have not already done so, please complete the quick five-question survey to share your company’s initiatives so we can share them with our schools.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I submit a proposal for the MISBO Webinar Series?

MISBO is accepting presentation proposals for future series. Please contact Dianne Sagaas for dates and additional information. If you have questions regarding our webinar series, contact Dianne at 404.921.3812.

Can I host my own sales webinar?

In place of vendor-hosted webinars, MISBO has launched a new vendor-focused program called Meet & Greet. These MISBO-hosted online Zoom meetings target schools that meet specific profiles for your product or service. Please contact Susan or Amelia to learn more and schedule yours!

Why aren't email addresses on the monthly contact spreadsheet?

At MISBO we have over 120 consortium partners and almost 3,000 school contacts. And, while we love our partners, it would not be beneficial to our members or YOU if our school contacts received mass emails from all of our vendors. If you have specifically targeted marketing for a group of schools, please contact Jay or Susan and we can help you figure out the best way to reach them.

Where can I find the MISBO Consortium Partner Logo to co-brand my promotional material?
