Business Affiliates

TSBA has established one more opportunity for the community to get involved in supporting children – through the association’s Business Affiliate Program. The Business Affiliate Program makes it easier for businesses that work with school boards to reach their target audience.

Who are Business Affiliates?
Business Affiliate membership is extended to businesses and organizations providing goods and services to Tennessee’s school systems. Business Affiliates are crucial to TSBA’s efforts to improve education across the state because they work with school boards to improve educational opportunities for children. Business Affiliates must receive high recommendations from boards they already serve.

How does being a Business Affiliate benefit a company?
There are numerous tangible benefits from partnering with TSBA in our Business Affiliate program, but most of all school boards know that Business Affiliates have worked successfully with other boards. Becoming a Business Affiliate gives reputable companies credibility with boards or school system personnel who make decisions regarding products.

How does a company become a Business Affiliate?
TSBA is committed to having the highest quality companies as Business Affiliates. To become eligible, companies must have recommendation letters from three boards of education in Tennessee. The program makes choosing a vendor easier for school systems.

Below you will find the various affiliate levels and associated benefits. We recently added new benefits to our packages that include an option to have an ad displayed on monitor at TSBA Headquarters during all scheduled meetings, an ad in the TSBA booth during the TSBA Annual Convention Tradeshow, and an ad in the TSBA event mobile application.
