Your Professional Memberships in PASA and AASA Mean...

   

Being a Better Professional

Both PASA and AASA offer opportunities for colleagues to meet and discuss common challenges and individual successes, along with workshops and conferences that provide members with opportunities for professional and personal growth.

Influencing State and National Education Policy

  • The PASA Legislative Committee meets regularly to study and comment on proposed legislation. PASA members serve on state advisory committees and testify on major legislative and State Board proposals. The Resolutions Committee articulates PASA positions on educational issues. The PASA Board of Governors meets regularly with state officials to discuss common concerns. PASA represents the membership to the General Assembly and the State Department of Education. 

  • AASA is widely recognized as the only association representing the interests of chief school administrators in Washington.

Information

  • PASA offers a resource-rich web site, monthly newsletter (The PASA Flyer), reports on educational, legislative, and personal activities of interest to members, and White Papers on issues of special interest. 

  • Check the AASA web site for a wide range of information available to school administrators on advocacy, leadership and public education.

Networking

  • PASA members network in a variety of ways: through contacts at the New Superintendents' Academy and Education Congress, among many professional development opportunities, a Women's Caucus that provides a network to address the unique interests of women school administrators, and a published Membership Directory which provides easy access to fellow members. 

  • Network with your colleagues across the nation through the AASA web site and many other professional opportunities.

Support

 
  • PASA members can call on PASA staff and colleagues when they experience job related problems. Members are eligible for limited legal services, including advice and assistance in developing contracts. Commissioned officers also are eligible to purchase Expanded Legal Services that includes direct representation concerning job-related issues.  Click here for information on this option.

  • AASA provides support resources and a liability insurance option for superintendents.  (See the AASA website for information at www.aasa.org.) .

PASA and AASA Membership Options....

In May 2014 voting PASA members approved amendments to the PASA Bylaws that revise the PASA membership dues structure, effective with the 2014-15 membership year, which begins on October 1.  All categories have changed and now are closely aligned with AASA membership categories.  PASA urges school administrators to join both PASA and AASA, the only national organization that represents the concerns of chief school administrators!
