MISBO's Awesome COnsortium partners

From the Desk of Jay Danielson

Director of the purchasing consortium

Hello everyone,

Well, here we are in September and, while not official for me, this is always the start of fall. It was a very busy summer here at MISBO and most of our schools are now back in session with many returning to the classrooms. I have mentioned this before, but there are still a lot of needs for COVID-19 related items and resources. If you have any information that we can communicate to our members, please be sure to get them to us as quickly as possible. Also, as mentioned last month we have been working on a new MISBO Partner Portal that in part will make it easier for you to enter the quarterly reports. We are excited about this new portal and expect to have it in place for reporting at the beginning of October. In the next couple of weeks, we will be sending out additional details on this process so be on the lookout!  

In addition, we have also 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.

I again want to thank you very much for the support you provide to MISBO and our member schools. Please keep safe!

Jay Danielson
Director of the Purchasing Consortium

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?
