Integrity, Transparency, and Loyalty in Action

June 1, 2018

PAISBOA has a long history of collaboration and cooperation through group purchasing for business insurance, energy, health insurance, and our purchasing consortium for goods and services.  PAISBOA has built a strong reputation in the region, in the independent school community, and in higher education as a brand you can trust—a brand that is steeped in integritytransparency and loyalty.  You should expect that from us, and we expect that from you.

In our work with our vendor partners—we look for the best in class with excellent pricing, stability, and customer service for our members, and we also expect our vendor partners to subscribe to the same values as PAISBOA— integritytransparency, and loyalty, in their work with us.  As your membership association, PAISBOA is committed to building strong, respectful relationships with you and for you, and since PAISBOA’s inception, Al Greenough has been the steward of those relationships.

While there are a few different versions about who hired Al to start the purchasing consortium for PAISBOA, there is absolute agreement around the fact that Al Greenough was the best man for the job. An excellent business background, a CPA, and experience working with the independent school community made him the perfect candidate for this new role.  His belief that cultivating the relationship was more important than making the wrong agreement sealed the deal! 

This week, Al finalized his last three agreements for PAISBOA with GradFin (student loan repayment platform), SchoolDoc (electronic health records), and Ruvna (school safety platform) joining the 40 or so agreements already in place that support the work of the business officer by saving them time, and their schools money.  In the transition process, Al stressed that saving time and money was important, but integrity, transparency, loyalty, and customer service are the keys to a great agreement and continued great relationships with vendor partners. 

Because of Al’s tenacity and work ethic, PAISBOA is fortunate to have generous corporate sponsors who support our consortia, our programming, and our member schools.  We especially want to thank the premium sponsors for their support of our Annual Meeting in April:

And all of course we thank our many Corporate Sponsors, without whom this event and others would not be possible.  We know that nurturing our relationships with our vendor partners is not only critical to our success as an association, it is critical to our individual member schools and universities.  We thank you for sharing in the PAISBOA experience and appreciate all that you do to promote integrity, transparency, and loyalty in your work with us. 

Thank you Al Greenough for getting us started on the right path!  Tee ‘em high, and let ‘em fly!

Take advantage of the power of the flock…
