Furniture Visioning Workshop Presented by the MSBA

Drawing of Newspaper - with headline "NEWS" - for Furniture Workshop

Dear MAPPO Members,

On Wednesday, March 7th at the Senior Center in Stoughton, the MSBA is hosting a Furniture Visioning Workshop.  The presenter, Bryan Ballegeer, KI Education Leader, will provide an interactive session on visualizing the important uses and performance function of classroom furniture.  Also present will be four manufacturer’s representatives with samples of their seating products.  The workshop will focus on defining what your priorities are to assist classroom furniture decisionmaking.  The workshop will begin at 1:30pm – 3:30pm.

You will not only learn how to recognize teaching and learning priorities that will help drive your interest in certain furniture products but you will also learn about the a process to participate in a collaborative bid for certain school furniture.  That is, to combine volume for certain products with other school districts in anticipation of lowering the unit cost of the items.  This is the MSBA’s first pilot program to help districts save costs and increase value.

Thank you in advance.
