For District Professionals

This conference offers educational sessions in the Facility Management Certification core program modules as well as continuing education credits. To minimize your time out of the office, the Wisconsin School Safety Coordinators Association's Conference is scheduled adjacent to the WASBO Conference. There is also the opportunity to attend the Wisconsin School Safety Coordinators Association Certification Session immediately preceding the WASBO Conferees (for an additional fee). This conference also offers a resource area with over 100 exhibit spaces to meet with the Service Affiliates who offer essential products and services for managing your school facilities.

For Service Affiliates

The exhibit hall will be open on both days, with lunch being served in the same area. Registration for booth space for the 2019 conference will open on December 7, 2018 at 8 AM. The exhibit hall features tabletop exhibits (no pipe and drape); each exhibit space is a 4' x 8' area with a skirted table, chair, and company identification sign. Attendees from the Wisconsin School Safety Coordinators Association Conference and the WASBO Transportation & Bus Safety Conference also will have access to the resource area, as those conferences overlap with the WASBO Facilities Management Conference.
