WASBO Foundation Fall Conference

The WASBO Fall Conference Committee values your expertise and invites you to share your knowledge with attendees at the 2017 WASBO Foundation Fall Conference Oct. 5-6 at the Osthoff Resort & Conference Center, Elkhart Lake, 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 June 1, 2017 to confirm whether your session has been selected by the conference committee. If you would like this submission to be considered for additional conferences, please submit for each conference separately.

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 business office functions in Wisconsin public school districts
  • presentation time is 60 minutes
  • presentation fits one of these tracks:
    1. Auxiliary Services (Facilities, Transportation, Risk Management, Food Service, etc.)
    2. Best Practices/Money Saving Ideas/Innovative Solutions
    3. Human Resources
    4. Professional Development
    5. Other school topics

Those selected to present must provide final handouts to WASBO by Sept. 11, 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 upon submission. WASBO 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 encouraged to team up with a school district professional to co-present educational and informative solutions to over 200 school business support 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 Fall Conference is obtained from a variety of sources. Neither WASBO nor any of its members or representatives accept liability for the contents or use of information presented at this conference.
