2019 Winter At a Glance

2019 Winter At a Glance
The Winter at a Glance Conference will prepare you for the months ahead as you navigate the 3rd Friday Count, prepare for budget development and gain an overview of business insurance and employee benefis.

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 4-5 School Personnel Academy immediately following Winter at a Glance. Also held at the Kalahari, the School Personnel Academy is a joint conference with the Wisconsin Association of School Personnel Administrators, and features topics including:
  • Fringe Benefit Compensation - When is a Gift Card Not a Gift?
  • Too Close for Comfort - Protecting Students from Staff Sexual Abuse
  • Applying Evidence-Based Budget Strategies to OPEB Planning
  • Employee Experience Mapping to Drive Wellbeing & Engagement
  • Slips, Trips, and Falls... but Wait, What Does Our Contract Say?
  • LGBTQ+ Attorney Panel
  • ... and more!
