Solution Providers

Become a Solution Provider!

MASBO takes great pride in partnering with vendors that align with our members' needs; and believe strongly in ensuring that vendors, members, and the Association all benefit from these partnerships. As such, we provide various opportunities to engage with the membership in ways that best suit your company's vision and mission. Solution Provider memberships run July 1 through June 30. Thank you for your consideration of MASBO as a valued conduit for your business to our membership!

In principle and in practice, the Association values and seeks diverse and inclusive participation within the field of school business management. MASBO promotes involvement and access to leadership opportunities to all members regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, nationality, or disability.

The FY23 school year introduces our new partner memberships and additional sponsorships! Thank you to all of our existing Solution Providers that provided input resulting in the chart below. Narrative descriptions of each are below the chart.

Affiliate Membership*: $375

Considered our traditional vendor membership, Solution Provider Affiliates attend our Bi-Monthly meetings at the member cost per person for up to two representatives. Your logo appears in the welcome slide deck and your name(s) is/are announced from the podium. A great way to participate with members, you'll hear the day's presentations, join engagement learning exercises to experience their world, and enjoy some great conversations over lunch. Additional benefits include:

  • Free registration for the Annual Institute. (Meals are charged separately. You'll be notified when discounted room reservations open, and they are booked and paid by you.)
  • Receive the MASBO Notebook, our periodic e-mail blast that incorporates member news, event reminders, and links to on-line articles and relevant documents that pertain to the business of schools and districts.
  • A reduced rate and early registration at our vendor event(s) (currently scheduled for November 2022 and May 2023).
  • Listing in Solutions Marketplace: our web-based buyer’s guide. (You can see it when logged in under the www.masbo.org Services tab.) General members are encouraged to search our Solutions Providers first when seeking needed products and services.

Affiliate Membership A La Carte Add-ons:

Enhanced Membership: $275

Limited to 17 Solution Provider Affiliates, experience the added benefit of a scrolling logo at the bottom of the website's homepage. The logo contains a hyperlink to your company's website for easy access by viewers. Please send a 300 pixel wide by 250 pixel high image in .png or .jpg/.jpeg format to admin@masbo.org.

Member-Helping-Member Session: $500

Partner with an existing Massachusetts School Business Administrator customer/client for a one-hour session on how the school/district solved a problem using your product/service. MHM sessions are a teaching and learning opportunity, not an advertisement. Your recorded MHM session will be available free to MASBO members for one year in our online learning environment where they can earn continuing educational credits, as will the SBA that partners with you.

Annual Institute Diamond Sponsor: $4,950

This sponsorship focuses on our annual conference held each May on beautiful Cape Cod. The benefits include: company logo and link featured on website homepage for one month selected by MASBO, one (1) recorded Member-Helping-Member session (see above), premium Welcome Reception location, two (2) meal tickets for all meals, one (1) concurrent session presentation, multiple podium recognitions, premium signage, company logo on conference webpage and on sponsorship banner, one swag gift and one single-page flyer for attendees, and two golf registrations.
