BuyBoard Vendor FAQ
Invitation to Exhibitors
The National School Boards Association has partnered with the Texas Association of School Boards and other State Associations of School Boards to create a cooperative purchasing program that is available through State Associations across the country and that meets the competitive procurement requirements in most states. We invite all of our exhibitors who are interested in the possibility of selling your products or services to a nationwide network of school districts, municipalities, and other non-profit organizations to REGISTER on the BuyBoard web site (www.vendor.BuyBoard.com) to receive RFP’s as they are issued. Click on “Vendor Information,” then follow the instructions. Additional information for vendors, including a complete list of FAQs, is available on this site.
