In this week’s Customer Spotlight, we're thrilled to showcase Glenn Blind, Director of Events and Meeting Management at the Consortium of State School Board Associations (COSSBA). Glenn's journey with PheedLoop has been nothing short of remarkable, and we're excited to delve into his experience with our event management platform. Join us as we explore how PheedLoop has transformed event planning for COSSBA and learn why Glenn Blind chose PheedLoop among other event management platforms.
The Consortium of State School Board Associations (COSSBA), was established by State School Board Associations in late 2021. This nonpartisan national alliance is dedicated to sharing resources and information to support, promote, and strengthen State School Board Associations as they serve their local districts and board members. COSSBA operates as a membership-based organization, with the State School Boards being its primary members. As a result, local school boards affiliated with the State Association automatically become members of COSSBA. Currently, COSSBA boasts 25 member states and continues to expand its reach by bringing more states under its fold.
