Partnership Pathways

Partnership Pathways 2

KASB understands the vital role that vendors play in the successful outcomes our members seek to achieve. We value the key role that you play plugging in with them and offering your products and services to support student success and local community engagement outcomes.

 

Many vendors have supported our association for decades. KASB has a partner’s program that supports two outcomes:

  •  Provides a unique opportunity for our membership of to see your organization as one that is both positioned and committed to education marketplace in Kansas, not just a marketer in this space. Sets your organization apart as one that not only markets to our members but supports the desired outcome of student success.

  •  Our membership in continuously seeking support and engagement from vendors for a variety of goods and services. They look to their professional association to be the initial vetting and recommendation resource for the district administration and board of education.

 

Our most expansive partnership opportunity is an Association Partnership. An annual or multi-year contract agreement that showcases your company’s commitment to public education in Kansas. Allows the vendor access to multiple association events throughout the year, title sponsorship of our annual convention and other unique marketing opportunities.
