ABOUT ASBA

Learn How Advertise and Partner With ASBA

Create deep connections with board members, superintendents and business officials by developing name recognition and face-to-face interactions. Remember, school boards are the critical bodies that approve school district expenditures.

Maximize your investment in marketing and promotion dollars through coordinated strategies and package savings.

Step 1. Become a VIP – Very Important Partner

With our new VIP – Very Important Partner – annual corporate sponsorship program, we’ve done away with the idea that one size fits all. Each VIP annual sponsorship package is flexible and can be tailored from a menu of options to meet the business goals you want to achieve.

VIPs have the opportunity to build and implement a year-long plan that will increase your reach and create ongoing connections throughout the year with public school decision-makers: school board members, superintendents, business managers and other administrators, and build brand and product awareness in-person, online, through social media, and through our frequent print and electronic communications with public education decision-makers.

To get started increasing your reach and visibility, contact Ellen White, ASBA Director of Business and Conference Services or call 602.254.1100.
