Mentor Program

WASPA is pleased to offer a Mentor Program to those new to their HR positions.  We have experienced HR Directors across the state willing to offer their experience and expertise to any new-to-school HR staff.  This can apply regardless of your role within the HR department, whether you hold an administrator position or serve in a supporting role.  Participation in the Mentor Program is available to all WASPA members. 

The Mentor Program includes periodic seminars with valuable training and the opportunity to network with others who are new to school HR.  We start the year with a July Academy for New HR Administrators and Support Staff, followed by pre-conference seminars preceding both the fall and spring conferences.
