Partnership Program

 To learn more about our WASBO Partnership program opportunities please contact the WASBO office

WASBO has developed two levels of partnership with the goals of:

1.    Collaborating with vetted businesses that add value for WASBO’s members by helping districts solve pressing and complex challenges

2.    Enhancing member benefits by way of meaningful partnership revenue

3.    Strengthening the financial security to the association via a shift in dependency on membership dues

 LEVELS OF PARTNERSHIP

 Two levels of partnership were developed and their benefits are as follows:

the principal element or ingredient of anything, considered as its fundamental part:

Base Program

This relationship is a one year (1) agreement and is event focused.  The benefit to the partner is that they have a bundled marketing package that integrates amongst all visible opportunities at an event for one price.

The benefit to WASBO is that there are structured, cohesive deliverables that can be systematically managed and payment is received up front in lump sum.

The deliverables of each level of partnership are directly aligned to the current “assets” that WASBO has (website, membership, events, etc.)

ACCESS

  • Registration for one (1)  at the annual conference.
  • Meal selections for one (1) at the annual conference.
  • Partner will receive the list of event attendee

VISIBILITY 

  • Booth at the annual conference.
  • Signage at the annual conference.
  • ½ page ad in the Conference Program.
  • Program Partner Recognition page in the Event Program (listing of all partners on full page)

BRAND AWARENESS

  • Company logo placed on the Annual Conference website page for 2 months prior to the event.
  • Partner organization is introduced (either in person on stage or verbal introduction) during General Session.
  • Rotating Power Point slide of partners listed pre-general session (if this currently exists prior to the general session starting). This is a “WASBO thanks its base partners for contributing to the success of this years conference” slide. 

 EXTENDED REACH

  • Base Partners will have a $1,000 allowance to spend on sponsorship opportunities at the annual conference. 

 RIGHTS

  • Base partners will have the opportunity to choose event sponsorship opportunities prior to other suppliers receiving the sponsorship guide (the Peak Partners will have First Rights prior to the Base Partners).
  • Base partners will have one week to choose their sponsorship opportunities.

Peak Program

This relationship is a three year (3) agreement and focused on year round support and interaction.  The benefit to the partner is that they receive multiple opportunities for access and visibility in order to strengthen their position in school business.

The benefit to WASBO is that there are structured, cohesive deliverables, including content (videos, webinars, white papers and expertise) to be used to educate members on complex issues facing school business.

Peak Program Partners require an intense due diligence process and board approval.  The due diligence process includes evaluation of:

  • Experience in the marketplace and evaluation of other strategic relationships the partner might hold
  • Financial Strength (Dunn and Bradstreet, S&P, etc.)
  • Business Profile/model
  • Products/Services (must be a leader in their space)
  • The company’s benefit to education
  • Alignment with professional standards of WASBO’s ethics policy
  • Peer Review Process for complaint resolution
  • Failure will not put WASBO’s reputation/brand at risk
