MISBO's Awesome COnsortium partners

MISBO consortium partner resource page

From the Desk of Jay Danielson

Director of the Purchasing Consortium

Well, spring is officially here and pollen season is in full swing in Georgia. This is also a great time of year for us to communicate to our member schools the value of our Consortium Partners as they look to wrap up year end budget and plan for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. We encourage you to help by sending us the most recent promotional material for us to include in our communications to our member schools. This is also a great time to confirm we have the most recent contact information and overview for your profile on our MISBO website. Please be sure to visit www.misbo.com to view what is currently listed under your profile and please contact Susan or myself with questions or updates. And we are still looking for articles about your area of expertise on our MISBO Consortium Hot Topics blog page!

MISBO Marketing Specifications

I'm a new vendor - now what?

  • Make sure Attachment B from the contract is completed and sent to Jay Danielson at jaydanielson@misbo.com as soon as possible. This information is used to create the vendor page on misbo.com
  • Schedule your MISBO Video Interview with Jay Danielson. If you are a digital resources vendor, please contact Susan Flanagan to schedule your video. This video will be featured on your password protected vendor page and is a simple interview-style introductory video recorded online over Zoom Meetings.

  • Please check your MISBO website at misbo.com/vendors to make sure the information is accurate and correct.

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?
