Affiliates Program

The MABE Affiliates Program is a business opportunity specifically designed to benefit both your company and our members. Affiliates are able to reach key decision makers with information about products and services through our publications, website, sponsorships opportunities, and conference exhibit hall. Best of all, your affiliate membership supports public education in Maryland.

The annual Affiliate fee is $500 for businesses and $400 for non-profits.
