• MASA BUSINESS PARTNER PROGRAM

    NETWORKING  
    The MASA Business Partner Program provides opportunities for businesses to connect with Minnesota’s educational leaders. Our core belief is that MASA’s role in engaging business partners is to facilitate a rich conversation that helps our practitioner members understand what resources are available to support their districts, and our business partner members understand the needs of our school districts.

    The Minnesota Association of School Administrators (MASA) is a private nonprofit member service organization representing more than 900 educational administrators throughout Minnesota. Members include school superintendents, directors of special education, other central office school administrators such as curriculum directors and technology leaders, regional administrators, and higher education administrators and professors.

    MASA’s Business Partner Program offers businesses:

    • Access to MASA members
    • Visibility and opportunity to build name recognition and customer relationships
    • A vehicle for businesses to demonstrate their commitment to children and education
    • Opportunities to gain information and insight into the issues, needs, and concerns of school leaders, as well as the trends and research important to the field of education.
