Aspiring Administrators Conference

Ready to go into administration? Here’s your first step.

The Aspiring Administrators conference provides insight into the hiring process for those seeking their first school administration position. Specific sessions will address the process from resume preparation through the final interview and negotiating your first administrative contract.
Experienced administrators will be on hand to guide attendees through the complex process of seeking that initial leadership position.

OASSA and OAESA will offer 100 full-paid scholarships (50 for each association) to educators interested in attending the conference thanks to a grant from the Ohio Department of Education. Attendees will also receive a one-year associate membership to either OASSA or OAESA.
