Affiliate Membership programs
United School Administrators (USA|Kansas) values its relationship with vendors and corporate partners. We recognize and applaud your continued commitment to supporting education in Kansas especially during these challenging economic times.

Each year, Kansas school administrators spend millions of dollars for products and services in their districts. These administrators are responsible for the acquisition of instructional technology services and materials, textbooks, administrative services, building maintenance, transportation services, food services and more.

As school districts make difficult decisions about spending, contracted vendors at the state and local level have been particularly impacted by cuts to K-12 education funding. As community leaders, we share your belief that maintaining a quality of life in our state that supports economic growth, financial stability, and a strong public education system is key to ensuring a prosperous future for Kansas. Continued cuts to essential services, including education, will have unfortunate and lasting consequences for our next generation of children and for our business partners. In recognizing the critical role your business plays in supporting education and the economy, we invite you to join USA|Kansas as an affiliate member or corporate sponsor.
Our business partners and vendors recently received information from USA|Kansas about our Affiliate Membership and Corporate Sponsor Program for Business and Organizations, as well as an invitation to exhibit at the 2014 USA|Kansas Annual Convention. At that time, we introduced you to the Confidence in Public Education Task Force and the Governor's Scholars Awards Program. As a member of the Task Force, I am writing to ask for your support for the Governor’s Scholars Award (GSA) Program. This program annually honors the top one percent of graduating seniors in Kansas’ accredited public and private schools. More than 550 students are expected to be honored on May 4, 2014 at Washburn University in Topeka. Your participation in sponsoring this program is critical to its success. Donations are tax deductible*.
On behalf of USA|Kansas, I would like to extend a warm welcome and thank you to our vendors. USA|Kansas values its relationship with vendors and corporate partners. We recognize and applaud your commitment to supporting education in Kansas, especially during these challenging economic times. Our organization remains committed to working with districts and our business partners to ensure a prosperous future.

As suppliers and manufacturers of school equipment, products and services, we recognize the critical role your business plays in supporting education and the economy, we are pleased to extend this invitation to join us for our 44th Annual USA|Kansas Convention. This year's convention will be held June 3-5, 2015 in Wichita at the Hyatt and Century II Convention Center.
BUSINESS_DIRECTORY_COVER_1_1.jpg
The USA|Kansas Business Directory is a new resource developed by USA|Kansas to recognize our affiliate members and business partners, while also providing administrators with contact information for vendors and corporate partners in major purchasing areas. As school districts make difficult decisions about spending, contracted vendors at the state and local level have been particularly impacted by cuts to K-12 education funding. USA|Kansas applauds their continued commitment to supporting education in Kansas especially during these challenging economic times.

Each year, Kansas school districts spend millions of dollars on products and services. Recently, there has been increased demand --by both districts and vendors -- for a business directory. The Business Directory will be distributed to superintendents, school business officials and administrators. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to place an ad in our first edition (October 2010).
