ASBA Administrative Professionals Workshop
Hot Springs | June 24, 2019

Administrative professionals often feel like they spend 100% of their time taking care of other people’s needs, concerns, and problems, leaving very little time to focus on their own needs. This is your chance to network with work-alike colleagues from across the state - not only learn information and skills to assist you with your duties, but to learn ways that will help you take care of yourself as well.

The 2019 ASBA Administrative Professionals Workshop is a day-long professional development opportunity for administrative assistants, school secretaries, bookkeepers, and others, whose job duties intersect with the work of their school board, superintendents, and other stakeholders. The administrative professional’s duties are vast and often have both practical, legal, and cultural implications for their schools and boards. Their role as the “front line” for school districts is becoming increasingly more vital and primary to the public’s perception of the district.

Please make plans to join us for the 2019 ASBA Administrative Professionals Workshop Monday, June 24, at the Hot Springs Convention Center located at 134 Convention Blvd, Hot Springs, AR 71901. This year’s agenda will cover topics such as:
•    Navigating the Waves of a Positive Workplace Culture
•    A Review of ASBA’s Database and How to Make Updates
•    Taking Ownership and Creating a Positive Workplace Culture
•    Updates and Answers to Current Legal Issues
