Negotiators' Symposium

Event Information

ACSA's Negotiators Symposium.

This event with its mix of interactive and workshop sessions, presented by practitioners, consultants and attorneys, will offer information and provide insight into the issues and laws that confront HR departments.

Negotiators' Symposium brings HR professionals together to help them stay informed on ever-changing employment legislation, network with colleagues, and provide a forum for exchanging information on trends and ideas used in HR management today.

Having a well-trained and informed negotiation team provides the framework upon which school change and student academic success is built. This event is particularly useful when the whole district negotiating team attends and works on their skills together.
