WHAT WE DO
The West Virginia Association of School Administrators (WVASA) and its members serve to support current and aspiring public school administrators in West Virginia at the state and county levels with public education legislation development and public education advocacy, along with professional networking, and professional development opportunities throughout the state.
The WVASA Summer Conference will be held at Glade Springs Resort in Daniels, WV, from Wednesday, June 23 to Friday, June 25, 2021. Our summer conference provides outstanding professional development and great opportunities for networking. The conference registration fee provides a complimentary membership to WVASA for the coming year, so this is an excellent opportunity for superintendents and county office staff to continue their membership in WVASA.
