Sponsorship Opportunities

Companies recognize the important role school board members play in education in their communities. Through the Affiliate Program, KSBA provides opportunities for private sector partners to connect. Private sector partners and other education-focused groups also can reach board members through advertising in the award-winning Kentucky School Advocate and sponsorship at various KSBA events, including the Winter Symposium, Annual Conference and Summer Leadership Institute.
