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 at the end of a school year and halfway through 2020. There is still a lot of uncertainty regarding the COVID virus and when schools will be able to return to the old normal. I think most are hoping to be back in classrooms for the fall. During the past few months, a number of you have provided some exceptional resources for our members as they transitioned to a virtual work and education environment. 

We have set up a dedicated page on our website to help promote these resources so if you have any information please forward to Susan or myself. Also, as schools look to get back to the old normal, we want to make sure we are doing our best to promote all our MISBO Consortium Partners. If you have any information or marketing material that we can communicate again, please forward to Susan or myself. As I mention often, we do very much appreciate your support of MISBO and our member schools. Please let us know what we can be doing to also help promote and support you!

Thank you!

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 MISBO Digital Educational Resources Portal is now OPEN for school ordering. While we encourage you to reach out to our member schools and librarians, remember, all pricing should come through MISBO!

Preliminary Sales Data was sent to you via email on June 1, 2020. Please review for pricing and accuracy. A second spreadsheet will be sent on June 15, 2020. This is an opportunity for you to reveiw pricing and reach out to schools who have not yet placed a renewal item in their MISBO cart.

First purchase order will be sent out the last week of June.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Susan Flanagan.

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 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 Consortium Partner Logo to co-brand my promotional material?
