MISBO was originally founded as Business Officers (of) Atlanta Area Independent Schools (BOAAIS) in 1976 by Ken White, Business Manager of The Westminster Schools, and the business officers of five other Atlanta area independent schools for the purpose of encouraging excellence and creative leadership in their independent schools.
As the association moved forward, it developed a purchasing consortium and helped develop policy for a liability insurance program, while continuing to promote best practices and professional development. In June of 1998, the association was renamed Mid-South Independent School Business Officers, or MISBO.
