MISBO's Awesome Vendors

MISBO Vendor resource page

from the Desk of Jay Danielson
Director of the Purchasing Consortium

Thank you for being an awesome MISBO Vendor! This page is a resource for you as a MISBO Vendor. MISBO very much values the service and support you provide to our member schools and MISBO as an association. Our goal is to help introduce each of our MISBO Vendors as a resource for our members in helping them fulfill their missions and ultimately deliver exceptional value to enrich learning.

On this page we hope you will find useful information on sponsorship opportunities, FAQ's, marketing opportunities, MISBO contact information, and more. 

We encourage you to visit this page often for updates. We also encourage you to take advantage of all the marketing opportunities available and allow us to help you build relationships with our member schools. As always, please feel free to reach out to Team MISBO with any questions or suggestions on how we can power independent schools together.

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?
