- A mentor, to coach you through the challenges and the celebrations
- Virtual check ins to include updates from DPI, the legislative outlook, mentoring and your peers!

Details on the Year of Success conference dates and tentative session schedules can be found at www.wasbo.com/success.
WASBO is committed to supporting new business office staff throughout the course of the year. The WASBO Mentorship Program helps to accomplish this by pairing new business officials on a one-to-one basis with experienced veterans who can serve as a resource and sounding board, help to integrate the knowledge and skills learned through conferences and self-study and introduce the protégé to a network of contacts in the field. All first-time participants in the program will be assigned a mentor.
For more information on Mentorship, see www.wasbo.com/mentorship or contact Sue Schnorr and Jill Bodwin, WASBO Mentorship Program Coordinators.
In accordance with Dane County's mask mandate, all conference attendees will be required to wear masks while indoors regardless of vaccination status. Please plan to wear a mask to adhere to both the county's and WASBO's policies. If you don't have a mask, WASBO will provide one for you!
