ASBO International and Horace Mann Announce Partnership
Ashburn, VA — The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) is pleased to welcome Horace Mann as an Affinity Partner to its Corporate Alliance Partnership (CAP) program. Through this partnership, ASBO International will be able to provide school business leaders with the tools, resources, and knowledge to have a broader impact on educators and their students.
“The ASBO International-Horace Mann partnership reflects both organizations’ commitment to supporting educators and school business professionals,” ASBO International Executive Director David J. Lewis explains. “Horace Mann is in the perfect position to help our members strengthen their schools and districts by assisting with tools to help secure funding for district classrooms, attract and retain employees, and maximize employees’ hard-earned salaries.”
“With growing stressors on educators during the pandemic, we need to find ways to lessen the financial burdens educators face and allow them to focus on what they love -- teaching their students,” said Horace Mann President and CEO Marita Zuraitis. “For more than 75 years, Horace Mann has worked with educators to find solutions to the challenges they face, and this partnership is another way for us to continue to live that commitment.”
ASBO International launched the CAP program in December 2020. The program provides an opportunity to support school business officials and the education of students around the world through collaboration with the international association that brings them all together.
For decades, the association has partnered with several best-in-class companies that have shared an unwavering commitment to school business excellence. Through the new CAP program, these companies will continue to build their relationships with school districts with new engagement opportunities such as webinars, special projects, white papers, and other thought-leadership activities.
As an Affinity Partner, Horace Mann joins a strong network of companies committed to supporting ASBO International’s mission of ensuring all students have the resources they need to access a quality education.
