MISBO's Awesome COnsortium partners

MISBO consortium partner resource page

From the Desk of Jay Danielson

Director of the Purchasing Consortium

As we get closer to wrapping up the 2018-2019 school year, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you, our valued Consortium Partners, for all the support you continue to provide to both our member schools and MISBO. With that, this is a very busy time of year for our schools as they continue to prepare for the 2019-2020 school year so this is a great time to provide us with information to communicate to the schools. This can include additional information on your company, products, or programs.

Keep in mind we are still looking for articles about your expertise for our MISBO Consortium Hot Topics blog page! This is a great way to help us show our members that you can be a valuable resource for them not only by providing savings but also helpful information. Remember, the MISBO staff is committed to putting your information in front of our member schools but we also depend on your participation to provide us with that information. Also, make sure you are reaching out to the schools directly and promoting the MISBO relationship.

Included in this communication is our list of member schools with contacts. Please share this with any individuals in your company or let us know if anyone needs to be included on our distribution list. Also, please feel free to reach out to Susan or myself to let us know how we can assist!

Lastly, just a reminder that June 30 is the close of this quarter and the MISBO fiscal year. Please help us close this year by sending/entering this quarter's volume reports as promptly as possible after the close of the quarter. If you have any questions on reporting please feel free to contact Cheryl Goode (cherylgoode@misbo.com) or myself and we will be glad to assist.

MISBO Marketing Specifications

I'm a new vendor - now what?

  • Make sure Attachment B from the contract is completed and sent to Jay Danielson at jaydanielson@misbo.com 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.

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 diannesagaas@misbo.com or 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?
