2017 Winter At A Glance Conference

2017 Winter At A Glance Conference
Register today for this single-day conference with a focus on business office responsibilities most critical for the winter months.
Make sure you are on track to meet reporting deadlines including the upcoming Second Friday count, complete reports accurately, and build your budget for 2018-19.

Who Should Attend?

Winter at a Glance is part of the Year of Success Program, a 6-conference series that serves as an ideal introduction to those new to the business office. As with other conferences featuring a Year of Success track, Winter at a Glance is designed for new business managers, bookkeepers, and district administrators. Anyone may attend this conference; you do not need to have registered for the Year of Success Program. Even if you are not new to school business management, you may find this conference to be a helpful review in preparing for the months ahead.

School Personnel Academy
Make the most of your time out of the office, and attend the December 6-7 School Personnel Academy immediately following Winter at a Glance. Also held at the Madison Marriott West, the School Personnel Academy is a joint conference with the Wisconsin Association of School Personnel Administrators, and features topics including:
  • Attracting and Retaining a New Generation of Employees Panel Discussion
  • Confidentiality and Privacy in the Business Office
  • DPI Licensure
  • General Benefits Compliance Review
  • Implementing Employee Benefit Changes Based on Employee Education and Engagement
  • Collaborative Approach to a Predictable Sustainable Alternative Teacher Compensation
  • Teacher Compensation Models for Rural Districts
  • Independent Contractors - Are They Truly Independent? Are They an Employee? Or Are They a Dealer?
