Contribute to your leadership role for Illinois schools and speak with one voice

As a recognized state affiliate of the American Association of School Personnel Administrators (AASPA), IASPA is an opportunity for all Illinois HR administrators to speak with one voice before the Illinois General Assembly and the Illinois Board of Education. By becoming a member of IASPA, you are contributing to the leadership of Illinois’ schools.

Membership is open to those professionals involved in school personnel, human resources, or other school/employee relations work. The membership year is July 1 through June 30; to view the current membership options, see the IASPA membership categories below.

All members will receive the weekly IASPA newsletter "IASPA This Week" and will have access to the Members Only section of the IASPA website. The Members Only section includes downloadable resources including webinars, HR-related documents including job descriptions and interview questions. IASPA members have access to a mentor and to the IASPA Member Forum.

Being an IASPA member will save you hundreds of dollars in reduced fees for Webinars, Job Fairs, posting positions on our Job Board and as well as reduced registration fees for Professional Development events including Administrator Academies, our HR Essentials Workshop, and the Annual Conference.
