MISBO's Awesome COnsortium partners

MISBO consortium partner resource page

From the Desk of Jay Danielson

Director of the purchasing consortium

It's hard to believe we are almost into the middle of November already. The weather has been a little cooler here in north Georgia and the color of the leaves is breathtaking. So far, it’s a beautiful fall and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. With that, the MISBO office will be closed on the 24th, 25th, and 26th for the holiday.

I also wanted to thank all our Consortium Partners who participated as sponsors for our MISBO Annual Conference. It was a great success, and we were excited you were able to attend. Chattanooga was a great host city! If you did not participate there is always next year. Please keep an eye out for more information as we will be heading to Savannah next October.

We are now gearing up for our 2022 Winter Conferences - our Facilities and Auxiliary Conferences to be held February 6-8, 2022 in Orlando, FL. We have two exciting opportunities for our partners to participate in these events, as speakers and/or as sponsors. Please see all details below about how to submit proposals for a session and for sponsoring these events. If you have any questions, please contact Dianne Sagaas, Director of Professional Development.

As usual, we are looking to help promote all our valued Consortium Partners so if you have any marketing materials we can distribute to the schools please forward to me or Susan Flanagan in the MISBO office.

Thank you!

Jay Danielson 

Director of the Purchasing Consortium

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.

As part of MISBO’s ongoing efforts to engage members and consortium partners, MISBO will be opening up our Purchasing Consortium blog space to our consortium partners to be Guest Bloggers.

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 consortium partners 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 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?
