Partnership Benefits

Join our Community

A partnership with GOCSD gives those who work with, support, and seek to do business with our members a point of connection and involvement. Partnership is your “letter of introduction” to our many members. This annual partnership spans September through August. Partnership does not imply endorsement by GOCSD. Bundle a Partnership with an Innovation Summit 2023 Sponsorship to receive a discount, as explained below.

Innovation Summit 2023 Sponsorship

We invite you to be a part of our GOCSD Innovation Summit 2023, the premiere educational conference in Southwest Missouri. We expect 800+ educators to attend the conference including: superintendents, district leaders, building administrators, university leaders, tech directors, instructional coaches, teachers, etc. It will be held in Branson, MO on Aug 3-4th.

When registering for a GOCSD Partnership, you can choose to bundle an Innovation Summit Sponsorship Tier to get a 5% Discount, have first shot at the a la Carte items, and have your sponsorship spotlighted on the GOCSD Website. Or, when the Innovation Summit Call for Vendors opens you can register for a sponsorship at that time and pay the full fee. For those who choose to bundle, when the Call for Vendors opens in January, you will submit the registration form with no payment required, unless you choose to add la carte items, an extra table, power for your table, or a box lunch; or want to level up your Tier.

A GOCSD Partnership is not required to be an Innovation Summit Sponsor. Sponsoring A la Carte items does not require a Tier Sponsorship. Refunds will be provided only if the event is canceled.
