"Lighting the Way"

November 7-9, 2022

The King and Prince Resort Beach & Golf Resort

The Georgia Association of School Personnel Administrators is pleased to announce the 2022

GASPA Fall Conference, November 7-9, 2022, at the King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort. A

tentative agenda will be posted on our GASPA website soon.

You will enjoy interacting with our keynote speaker, Dr. Tim Hodges. The Power of Positivity: Behavioral Science Strategies for Human Capital Leaders

The last two years have been challenging, to say the least! From the covid19 pandemic to political and racial unrest to wild swings in the economy and employment trends, we’ve all been challenged to rethink and reinvent the ways we lead. Ready for some good news? More than 20 years of research in the fields of positive psychology and behavioral economics has led to several tangible discoveries that we can integrate into our leadership. This session will review highlights from the behavioral science research and break it into tangible steps you can take to improve your life and the lives of those you lead and serve. The future is going to look different – let’s do all we can to make sure that it’s going to look better!

Dr. Buster Evans from TRS will join us to share the latest news from the retirement system.

GaDOE representatives will cover HB32, HB385, and current and future teacher pipeline

initiatives. Erin Roberson will facilitate an interactive session dealing with “tricky” HR scenarios that will benefit new and experienced HR professionals!

Phil Hartley, of Harben, Hartley and Hawkins, LLP, will present an always-informative

legal issues update, and a separate session on records retention and open records requests. From the Professional Standards Commission, you will hear from Dr. Matt Arthur and later Dr. Kelli Young and Windy Fortenberry, who will provide important certification updates. Anne Marie Fenton, Laurin Vonada and Penney McRoy, will provide updates from their respective departments.

Other presentations include: Growing a Culture of Belonging for Classified Staff,

Creating a DEI Committee, Interns as Teachers, and more!

A Pre-Conference Session is planned for Monday morning, November 7:

HR 101 Topics! This session is open to experienced Human Resources personnel as well as those who are new to the field. We will cover legal guidelines of the hiring process, Certification 101, Juggling the Many Hats Worn by HR Administrators, developing a monthly HR Calendar, important HR Resources and hold a Q & A session.

*This session is open to those who are new to the field of Human Resources as well as experienced Human Resources personnel.
