Commercial Affiliates

The Arkansas School Boards Association’s mission is to promote student focused leadership in public education through training, advocacy and services for local school boards. One of the key questions we ask ourselves in executing our mission is, “Is it good for kids?”

We embrace the idea that a quality education should be available to all Arkansas children. With financial resources dwindling, local school boards are looking for ways to make every dollar count in their communities.

ASBA values partnerships with businesses interested in supporting public education in Arkansas. Education decision makers want to do business with businesses they can trust. They want to do business with companies that are good neighbors. In joining the ASBA Commercial Affiliate program, you not only demonstrate that you believe in a quality education for all students, you also have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with decision makers in the public education market in Arkansas.

ASBA Usage of Fees Collected from Commercial Affiliates and Vendors: Commercial Affiliate revenue received from vendors will be used by ASBA to pay operational expenses such as professional development, advocacy services, attorney services or other operational expenditures.

As a 2018 Commercial Affiliate, you may choose one of three partnerships with ASBA. Below is an outline of benefits available with each partnership.

ASBA offers the opportunity to sponsor special events to Commercial Affiliate Partners. We are a private, not-for-profit organization and we rely on the support of organizations like yours to help us in our mission of “promoting student focused leadership in public education through training, advocacy and services for local school boards.”

Commercial Affiliates play a vital role in supporting Arkansas public schools—helping to support the programs and activities we provide to strengthen and improve public school governance in our state.  In doing that you also enhance your visibility among the state’s locally elected school boards and their superintendents. These decision-makers approve the purchase of products and services for their school districts.

Become a member today! Download, print, and submit the 2019 Commercial Affiliate Membership Form and Contract; or, register online to save time and postage, and expedite your membership renewal.

You may choose to be invoiced for payment or pay online by credit card. Note: Commercial affiliate fees and sponsorships are not deductible as charitable contributions.

If you have any questions, please contact Angela Ellis at 501-372-1415.
