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 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.

For information on how to become a business affiliate, contact Jenna Zwan, TSBA Director of Finance and Human Resources at or 615-815-3905.
