MISBO's Awesome COnsortium partners

MISBO consortium partner resource page


From the Desk of Jay Danielson

Director of the Purchasing Consortium

Dear MISBO Consortium Partners,

Happy New Year!  This school year is flying by and the MISBO Staff has hit the ground running in 2020. We have several live events happening at the end of this month and a number of the MISBO Staff will be traveling to Florida in early February to visit member schools.

This is a great time of year to be reaching out to our members to promote our Consortium Partner contracts and demonstrate how valuable you can be as a resource for their schools. I encourage you to engage with our members directly and also to provide the MISBO office any marketing material or educational material we can help distribute to our members. Our goal is to help you make the connection with our members and build long term relationships.

Please feel free to contact either myself or Susan Flanagan with any questions on providing us with marketing material or ways we can help connect with schools. Also, please keep the MISBO office updated with any contact information changes.

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 closed for school ordering. However, we can still handle renewals or new orders outside of the Portal.  If any of our MISBO member schools come to you for orders, please continue to refer them to Susan Flanagan for pricing and ordering.

Trial Sites – Please have all trial site information (links, user id/password) information to me by January 20, 2020. We will be launching our MISBO trial site page on February 6, 2020.

Products, Descriptions and Pricing – Please have all information to me by February 15, 2020, if possible. Susan will be reaching out in January with the information we currently have in the system. Now is a good time to review the list and remove or add any products that are appropriate!

MISBO DER Portal Opening – We will be opening the portal for ordering on April 13, 2020. As always, we will collect orders and send the first purchase order to you the end of June. I will send out preliminary sales data the end of May and beginning of June for review.

Partnership meetings – I would love to schedule a one-on-one meeting with you in January to review 2019 and look forward to 2020 and how I can best support you for the upcoming year!

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?
