WASBO and WASPA value your expertise and invite you to share your knowledge with attendees at the 2017 WASBO/WASPA School Personnel Academy Dec. 6-7 at the Madison Marriott West, Middleton, WI. Please complete the form below for your presentation to be considered. Note that final programming decisions are made by the planning committee. Submissions will be accepted through March 31, 2017. You will be contacted by Sept. 15, 2017 to confirm whether your session has been selected by the conference committee.

Selection criteria includes, but is not limited to:

  • presentation must be informative in nature (not a marketing pitch)
  • presentation fits the educational criteria for those responsible for human resources and personnel functions in Wisconsin public school districts
  • presentation time is approximately 75 minutes

New topics are encouraged. Topics could include but are not limited to:

  • ACA topics
  • Legal issues

  • Compensation models
  • School clinics
  • Licensure issues


Those selected to present must provide final handouts to WASBO by Nov. 13, 2017. Handouts will not be printed, but will be provided electronically to attendees on the WASBO website and on a flash drive distributed to attendees at the conference. All handouts are the property of WASBO/WASPA upon submission. WASBO/WASPA reserves the right to edit submissions for length and content.

WASBO will provide presenters a projector and a microphone (if necessitated by the room and audience size). Presenters are asked to bring their own laptops if one is needed for the session.

If you are a District Professional, consider teaming up with your colleagues or a Service Affiliate to present a session on an innovative idea or best practice you have implemented in your district. Attendees appreciate the information provided by their peers and often find they can apply what they have learned at the conference when they return to their districts.

Service Affiliate Members are strongly encouraged to team up with a school district professional to co-present educational and informative solutions to school business and human resources staff. Inviting district personnel to co-present gives additional credibility to the information you are providing. If you present quality information, attendees will remember the expert who provided it.

Written and oral information provided at the School Personnel Academy is obtained from a variety of sources. Neither WASBO, WASPA, nor any of their members or representatives accept liability for the contents or use of information presented at this conference.
