ASBO International Welcomes Ricoh as New Strategic Partner
Reston, VA – March 22, 2018 – The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) is pleased to announce that Ricoh USA, Inc., is its newest Strategic Partner—effective January 1, 2018—after having been an Event Partner for the past three years. ASBO International’s Strategic Partnership is the highest level of affiliation available to industry partners.
Strategic Partners play a critical role in helping ASBO International fulfill its commitment to support its members and school business professionals around the world. As an innovative technology company, Ricoh is a natural fit to collaborate with ASBO International as a Strategic Partner.
“The digital transformation of K-12 education is changing the way students learn, the way teachers deliver instruction in the classroom and the way administrators work and interact with their community,” says John Stewart, Partner Executive, Ricoh USA, Inc. “Ricoh is a trusted partner committed to helping school districts align with these changes by enhancing classrooms and workplaces with innovative technologies and services that enable students, educators and administrators to continually improve the learning experience with a focus on student outcomes.”
The collaboration will enhance and expand the online learning tools, resources, and opportunities available to school business officials and help ASBO members continue to develop their professional skills, making them even more effective leaders of their school district communities and the students they serve.
“Without the generous support of our partners, many of the programs, services, and resources we provide wouldn’t be possible,” ASBO International Executive Director John Musso explains. “School business officials are always seeking new ways to enhance their knowledge and leadership skills to improve student success, and we are excited to work with Ricoh to address this growing need.”
With this partnership, Ricoh demonstrates its continued commitment to the education community and the school business profession. By investing in school business officials’ professional development, Ricoh is helping ASBO International and its members advance the entire profession forward.
