It is an honor and privilege to serve as the 2020-21 Wisconsin Association of School Personnel Administrators President.  I am proud to represent an organization that is committed to the growth and development of school human resource professionals and our collaborative partners. 

The WASPA website is organized in a manner that highlights the services we provide, professional development opportunities available to members and non-members, recruitment fairs, and related business affiliations.  You will also find information about the Wisconsin Education Career Access Network (WECAN).  WECAN is the premier online recruitment tool and application for K-12 schools. 

Now more than ever, HR professionals need a reliable source of support.  WASPA strives to serve its members with multiple professional development offerings; mentorship; communication tools; and critical resources.  Our greatest asset is the powerful networking relationships that are created between members.  If you are navigating the daily challenges of human resources leadership, then guidance from active practitioners is critical. 

Our mission is to engage and develop educational leaders to ensure the success of all students by maximizing the effectiveness of human resources practices in Wisconsin schools. 

Our core values are centered on:

  • Serving our members by providing vital communication, resources, and statewide advocacy.

  • Ensuring student success by enhancing the educator talent pool.

  • Promoting collaborative leadership by building expertise through professional growth and statewide networking opportunities.

If you have questions about membership, or are interested in becoming a school human resources professional, please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.  I look forward to a successful year.
