Suggested Audience: 
A conference for executive assistants and administrative assistants who work at the building, district or ISD level. Presented by MASSP & MASA

Executive assistants and administrative professionals are indispensable in our buildings and school districts. They make vital contributions to the organization at all levels as troubleshooters and problem-solvers, and often are the go-to people supporting school leaders. Additionally, great assistants proactively look for ways to improve their skills and excel on the job.

Elevate, a new and innovative professional development conference for executive and administrative assistants, will tackle the current and future school environment, where individuals in this role face more high-end and increasingly complex duties. Keynote presentations and breakout sessions will help attendees gain understanding, build skills and learn techniques to support district leaders and their efforts to help every student succeed, as they network with peers from across the state.

Keynote sessions:

"Identifying Human Trafficking" - a powerful presentation from survivor and author Theresa Flores
"School Law 101 for the Frontline" - featuring Jennifer Starlin of Thrun Law Firm

Breakout sessions:

  • Listening and Communication Skills
  • People/Interpersonal Skills
  • Organizational Skills
  • Computer/Technology Skills

NOTE: This event will feature a pre-conference offering a human resources track and a tech track, giving attendees the opportunity to go in-depth on HR issues they frequently deal with and technology tools that are frequently used.
