Academy for New HR Administrators & Support Staff

WASPA's brand new Academy for New HR Administrators and Support Staff is being held November 7 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.  

This half-day seminar will offer critical training those new(er) to their HR duties and provides the opportunity to tag onto either the Fall Administrative Support Seminar on November 6 and 7 or to the Fall Administrator Conference on November 8 and 9.

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.

The academy offers training in recruitment, teacher licensing, legal statues, and HR tips and trics as well as the opportunity to meet mentors and other colleagues new in the field of school HR.

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