Vendor Membership

A Growing Opportunity

Louisiana Charter School Market

Over the last five years, Louisiana has experienced rapid growth in the number of charter schools in such key market cities as New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lake Charles, and Shreveport. Moreover, recent research studies show that many of our charter schools outpace traditional public schools in closing the achievement gap. As the only statewide organization serving Louisiana’s charter schools, Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools (LAPCS) is your best opportunity to get involved and connect with the rapidly expanding and successful charter school community.

Opportunities to Reach Louisiana’s Charter Schools:

Because the Association relies on its corporate vendors and nonprofits to serve the charter movement, we actively promote vendor members to our membership. Here are the primary ways for vendors and nonprofits to reach Louisiana’s charter school leaders:

1. Sign up to be a Vendor Member

Though LAPCS is a membership organization, we rely upon support from you, Louisiana’s business community, in order to help fulfill our mission of supporting, promoting, and advocating for the Louisiana charter school movement. By joining LAPCS as a Vendor Member, you will help LAPCS to continue providing many of our hands-on programs that help make our charter schools successful and sustainable. What’s more, through your annual vendor membership, the services your business provides will be actively promoted to each of our member schools. 

We have 3 levels of vendor membership: Silver, Gold, and Platinum.  You choose which level is right for your company.  It's that easy.

2. Congratulations…You're a vendor member! Now it's time to get noticed

The Association publishes an annual Louisiana Charter Schools Vendor Directory on our website. As a member benefit, vendor members will be featured in the directory with their logo. Vendor members receive discounts to exhibit at our Annual Charter School Conference and other Association-sponsored events. Finally, other perks of becoming a vendor member are:

Direct marketing opportunities to LAPCS charter school members 
Networking opportunities with charter school leaders at LAPCS hosted events
Logo & company information placement in Vendor Directory on LAPCS website
Subscription to monthly LAPCS newsletters
Discounted opportunities to exhibit at LAPCS’ Annual Charter School Conference

3. Take Your Membership to the Next Level… Become a Referred Service Provider

Once you have provided exceptional service to 5 member charter schools you are eligible to become a Referred Service Provider at no additional cost. As a Referred Service Provider, your organization receives a special logo on the Association's website.
