Since 2016, MSA has been looking far and wide for young companies that offer products or services that our members may not be aware of. In most cases, these companies are a few years out from start-up stages. In other instances, the companies have been in existence for longer, but have produced a new offering that we think is worthy of bringing to your attention. Each offering is first vetted by MSA members as to whether it is practical, effective, and economical for our schools.  And each product or service is offered to MSA members with a special benefit available only to members. Keep returning to this page. The number and types offerings will grow. They may not be for all schools in every instance, but MSA believes they are worth your strong consideration.

Join us for a brief discussion and synopsis of how Meteor can help.
