MISBO's Awesome COnsortium partners

MISBO consortium partner resource page

From the Desk of Jay Danielson

Director of the Purchasing Consortium

As I am writing this message, our MISBO members are getting ready for the faculty and students to return for the 2019-2020 school year. It seems like just yesterday there was a lot of discussion around the 21st century classroom and now we are well into the 21st century.

As this new school year starts our members will be sure to need many of the goods and/or services you, our valued Consortium Partners, provide. We are working on communications to our members and would very much welcome any marketing material you could provide or additional educational material we could post on our blog. While we make every effort to educate our members as to the value all of our Consortium Partners bring, it is vital that you help provide additional material as well. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Susan Flanagan or myself for details.

In addition, there are still a few sponsorship opportunities for the 2019 MISBO Fall Conference in Asheville, NC, October 2 - 4. This is a great opportunity to meet many of our members in person. We are very excited about this event so if you are interested in sponsorships, please act quickly. Beyond this event, we are also planning two additional programs in the winter - our Facilities Conference and our Auxiliary Programs Conference. There will be limited sponsorship availability for those and we will be sending out additional information soon.

As always I want to thank you very much for all you do for our member schools and all the support you provide to MISBO!

Jay Danielson
Director of the Purchasing Consortium

Digital Educational Resources News

At MISBO, we value our partnership and our desire is to help you establish relationships with as many member schools as possible!  The first round of purchase orders have been sent! Please contact Susan Flanagan if you have not received one! The MISBO portal will remain open until October 1, 2019. We have many schools who order when they return in the fall, so we are looking for more orders to come in the next several weeks, and I will contact you directly as additional orders arrive.

Please contact Susan Flanagan with any additional questions.

MISBO Marketing Specifications

I'm a new vendor - now what?

  • Make sure Attachment B from the contract is completed and sent to Jay Danielson as soon as possible. This information is used to create the vendor page on misbo.com
  • Schedule your MISBO Video Interview with Jay Danielson. If you are a digital resources vendor, please contact Susan Flanagan to schedule your video. This video will be featured on your password protected vendor page and is a simple interview-style introductory video recorded online over Zoom Meetings.
  • Send promotional material to Susan Flanagan. This promotional material will be highlighted on your password protected vendor page and affinity group website.
  • Please check your MISBO website at misbo.com/vendors to make sure the information is accurate and correct.

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 Jay or Susan to learn more and schedule yours!

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

At MISBO we have over 120 vendors and almost 3,000 school contacts. And, while we love our vendors, 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 specific 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 Vendor Logo to co-brand my promotional material?
