The Annual Conference for Clerical Administrative Support Staff is an event designed to create a time for professional development and networking geared specifically to this specialized segment of the N.I.S.D. workforce. The conference takes place during the Spring Semester and is held at the Northside Activity Center.
Participants have opportunities to hear presentations by recognized speakers in the educational field, district leaders, and participate in hands-on learning in a festive learning environment. In order to allow the greatest number of people to attend, there are always identical morning and afternoon sessions. Each year the quality and reputation of this unique event grows and so does the participation rate.
The next conference is scheduled for March 8, 2016!
Keynote Speaker: Suzie Humphreys
Suzie Humphreys’ background is as varied as her audiences (administrative secretary to Television Talk Show Host, to 20 years in radio). She has crossed the country speaking to over 2,000 groups. She believes in GRIT—that you can do anything you decide to do and enjoy getting there. Her own personal wistful and funny stories prove her point that regardless of what the situation or the problem in the job it is NOT the problem...that’s the problem. It is YOUR THINKING ABOUT THE PROBLEM.
Participants rave about how Suzie makes them feel about their own potential to do good, to achieve and to tackle anything that comes their way.
To continue the tradition of giving back, the Task Force has selected to support Judy’s Cupboard sponsored by the Guidance & Counseling Department and the School Age Parenting Program. SAPP is a drop out recovery and prevention program which provides support services teen parents need to obtain their high school diploma.
