Fall Administrative Support Conference - Nov. 9-10, 2017

This is THE seminar that administrative support staff come back to year after year!  A chance for staff to network with others, relax and be pampered.  Attire is casual and comfortable.  Learn what's new in the human resources field.  

Our fall WASPA conference is being held November 9 and 10 at the Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake. Kindly note the different types of registrations offered. Any employee of a WASPA member district is treated as a "member" for registration and fee purposes.  

Room rates at the Osthoff are $82 per night for singles and $109 per night for doubles. The Osthoff also offers a two bedroom/two bath suite for $112.  Their reservation number is 800-876-3399. Simply indicate that you are a member of WASPA and let them know which conference you are attending as we have two booked there in November -- the Fall Admin Conference and the Fall Administrative Suppport Staff Conference. You will need to provide the first night's deposit upon making your reservation. There is a cancellation fee of $40 if you cancel your room reservation 72 hours prior to our conference. Any later than that and you will be charged the full night's rate.

This year's conference includes some great opportunities to learn from our presenters about the DPI fall staff report and licensing (Bring a laptop if you want individual assistance withe the DPI Fall Report), Skyward tips and tricks, employee handbooks, customer service, mindfulness practices to de-stress your workplace, WECAN tips and tricks, the ETF system, FMLA and Workers Comp.

Even though it's hard to take time away from our busy schedules in the office, this time to share and learn with peers is invaluable!

Join us as you will again have the opportunity to learn from the shakers and movers in the state and share your experiences with your fellow educators.

The Conferece is limited to the first 100 registrants.  In the past, we have run out of sleeping rooms, so register early and reserve your room at the Osthoff now.
