Exhibiting at the Illinois ASBO Annual Conference each Spring is a dynamic opportunity to interface with school district decision makers statewide, and just the beginning of what Illinois ASBO Service Associate membership has to offer. The more you get involved — whether through Professional Development Committees, as a session presenter or by sharing solutions in our online professional networking community — the better you will establish yourself as a partner to school districts. “I remember when I first started in the industry and an Illinois ASBO member encouraged me to join. I went to my first event just to see what it was all about. From that small glimpse, I knew that I had to get involved! It was a lot of money for us as a business at that time (we didn’t even have an exhibit booth) but I could tell it would be worth it. My company is probably 400 times bigger than it was that first day and I attribute a lot of that to Illinois ASBO. My involvement brought me connections that made me much more recognizable in the public school market. If you meet five or six people and do a good job just for them, word spreads!” SAAC Past Chair Michael A. McTaggart, CEO Quest Food Management Services, Inc.
