WE PROVIDE A NETWORK OF HUMAN RESOURCE PROFESSIONALS TO HELP YOU SUCCEED.
Since 1970, The Arizona School Personnel Administrators Association has proven to be a vital and strategic resource to school districts throughout Arizona! We invite you to join, network, share and, most importantly, learn new skills and techniques for dealing with the Human Resources Management and administrative challenges that we face in the School environments.
Dear ASPAA Members,
Welcome to the Arizona School Personnel Administrators Association (ASPAA)!
On behalf of the ASPAA Executive Board, thank you for being a valued member of our human resources professional association. As human resources professionals, we have a direct impact on the success of students throughout their educational careers. We have a leadership role in deciding who educates and influences our students and, ultimately, in their future. Human resources professionals are directly responsible for talent management including employing, retaining, developing, and advocating for a highly effective staff.
ASPAA is the only organization that specifically targets and represents school personnel professionals. If you are a human resource administrator, human resource support staff, superintendent, assistant superintendent, principal, or graduate student interested in this field, you will benefit from the ASPAA membership and participation. ASPAA provides professional development and networking opportunities to share, support and enhance best practices in human resources and talent management throughout the educational system.
You are essential to making a difference in the lives of students. Thank you again for being an ASPAA member. Please continue to participate and share at our professional development and networking opportunities.
Shaun Holmes, Ed.D. ASPAA President
"Hello my fellow and future ASPAA peeps! I just want the world to know how much I appreciate ASPAA (yes, that means you). I've been in a supportive HR role for 5 years and this association has been welcoming and supportive to me during that time and still continues to be. I have never felt alone or lost as I've always had someone to turn to in my fellow members. The comradery is kind, effortless, and prompt. I genuinely can say that after walking out of an ASPAA luncheon, or the annual conferences, I feel renewed energy, motivation, and a sense of certainty and confidence with everything I have learned. Any employer will appreciate that kind of development in their employee. The greatest reward for me being a member of ASPAA, is being able to pay it forward to another new member and knowing you're able to contribute to the generations of learning minds that fill our schools. Shout out to Class of 2015 ASPAA Academy!"
"I find my ASPAA membership to be just as useful and as effective as my membership with the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM). When I first transitioned from corporate human resources to school human resources fifteen (15) years ago; ASPAA members were very instrumental in me helping transition, transform and transcend as a HR professional."
"When I first assumed the job of Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources in PVSchools fifteen years ago, I knew a fair amount about school systems but precious little about the laws, regulations, and best practices of Human Resources in public education. The Arizona Association of School Personnel Administrators (AASPA) became a life line for me as it has for countless others over the years. I quickly learned that the people in AASPA are genuinely willing to help with time and resources. If you are in HR and you haven't joined, you need to sign up now and become an active member so that both you and the organization will grow. You won't regret it."
