Our Mission

The purpose of the Oregon School Personnel Association (OSPA) is to: a) foster the staffing of Oregon school systems with the highest qualified individuals; and b) encourage and assist in the development and utilization of exemplary school personnel administration practices.

All individuals with responsibilities for personnel administration and related functions in public, private, or postsecondary school systems in the State of Oregon are invited to become members of OSPA. Membership in OSPA requires an annual fee. You may register as a member by going to www.ospa.k12.or.us and then clicking on the Become an OSPA Member Today button.

One of the most important benefits of membership is access to a statewide network of people in positions similar to yours. The regular regional meetings of the association, held  in the fall at five different region sites, and in the spring at the annual Spring Conference, and our advanced retreats, workshops and conferences strengthen these connections.

OSPA currently provides an HR Leadership program titled "Human Resources in Education Leadership (HrELP)." Those interested in taking courses through OSPA can contact Marsha Moyer at moyerospa@aol.com. Additional information about the HrELP program is available here.

Members are asked to update their membership information when changes in position or contact information occur.

For more information about OSPA services, contact Dawn Strong, Executive Director, at ospastrong@gmail.com or phone: 541-954-2839.

Please help us spread the word. Thank you for your support!
