For CASBO Associate/Vendor Members Only (If you aren’t a member currently, join and start enjoying these benefits today!):
Information and Discounts: Associate/Vendor Members receive the bi-monthly electronic newsletter to say informed on issues of current importance and of leadership best-practices, registration discounts for quarterly workshops and Annual Institute, and school business managers mailing labels upon request.
The MarketPlace: CASBO has gathered together in one place, information from vendor member companies that offer goods and services. This is a searchable directory of product and service providers based upon selectable criteria. The listing will include contact information, a hotlink to your website, and a company description. As an associate/vendor member, your company will be included in the detailed listing. The MarketPlace is “The Place” to find all the products and services that districts need.
Resource Guide, Articles and Workshops: We are building an online resource guide for members to access. Also, we accept articles for the newsletter. As a vendor member, you are asked to submit material of general interest in a non-commercial, non-product specific manner. Examples might be a check-list of how to respond to a building disaster such as a fire or flood, requirements for building a retirement plan, etc. The materials must be presented in a fair and non-biased manner and must be of an educational nature and not specifically promote a company, corporation or particular line of products. The information presented must be industry related, not company or corporation related. CASBO reserves the right to determine an articles’ appropriateness. On occasion, we will accept an Associate Member’s proposal for a workshop topic provided it follows the same guidelines as the newsletter articles.
Featured Members: This is a special opportunity for a very limited number of members, accepted on a first come, first serve. CASBO’s website includes a rotating box, prominently displayed on the homepage, with the logos of our Featured Members. When visitors to the site click a logo, they will be brought to the website of the featured member. For the reasonable fee of $200 (in addition to Vendor Dues), your company can take advantage of this great opportunity to expand your exposure to those in the school business profession throughout the year. If you are interested, please email email@example.com your logo (300 pixels w x 250 pixels h) in either a .pdf or .jpg format. A limited number of Featured Members can be accepted. Payment and receipt of the logo must be received to ensure your spot.
Amount: $450 (includes $250 membership fee)
