In November, IASB will present a series of webinars for those who perform the duties of the school board secretary or administrative assistant. These events replace the Administrative Professionals’ program normally held at the Joint Annual Conference. The conference has been canceled this year with gathering restrictions in place because of the coronavirus pandemic.
These sessions were developed to offer knowledge-building and assistance for administrative professionals working with the particular challenges of 2020. Although these three sessions are designed especially for the administrative professional, all members are welcome. The events include:
