As a school administrator, there are two very important aspects of your life, which warrant continual attention: the honing of your professional/technical skills to assist in the running of your school districts and optimum success in your personal life. 

    NJASA is committed to the self-development of our members to achieve goals of professional and personal growth. Your Association also understands that the foundation of professional development is a self-directed and self-driven process designed to enhance the knowledge, skills and values of administrators, along with a formal recognition of achievement. 

    To that end, NJASA has designed a comprehensive professional development program, which will: 

      1. Provide sufficient programming choices to satisfy the varying needs of our members. 
      1. Offer low-cost attendance fees, through a professional development subscription, which may be purchased by your school district.
      2. Provide Professional Development hours to satisfy state mandates. 




    NJASA has planned nine one-day seminars over the course of the 2020-2021 school year. All sessions will be held virtually via Zoom or, depending on conditions, at Cobblestone Creek Country Club, located at 2170 Lawrenceville Rd, Lawrence Township, New Jersey 08648. The seminars will run from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm (approximate). 

    The fees for each individual seminar will be $149/member, $169/Nonmember. For those interested, considerable discounts to attend these seminars will be available through the purchase of a professional development subscription, described in more detail later in this brochure. 

    Note:  For in-person seminars, in case of inclement weather (snow, ice, etc.), please check the NJASA website www.njasa.net or call NJASA headquarters after 7:00 am for information on whether the seminar will be cancelled or rescheduled.  Please call 609-599-2900.
