PRESS Plus, member database help
to be available at JAC

The Administrative Professionals' Program at the 2017
Conference will feature kiosks set up just outside the Vevey
ballrooms at Swissotel to share personal and technical assistance.
Assistance both personal and technical will be available to attendees at the Administrative Professionals’ Program at the 2017 Joint Annual Conference.

On Saturday, Nov. 18, two kiosks will be set up outside the Vevey ballrooms at the SwissĂ´tel, both staffed by IASB personnel.

One kiosk will be available to assist users with updates to PRESS Plus, IASB’s full-maintenance policy update service. IASB Policy Consultant Angie Powell will be on hand to assist. In addition, Powell will offer two panel sessions at the Administrative Professionals’ Program, outlining the changes to PRESS Plus.

The panel sessions for PRESS Plus will be at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday. Assistance at the policy kiosk will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 to 4 p.m.

Another kiosk, also staffed with hands-on-help, will assist users with IASB’s new member database system. Implemented last year, the system offers school districts the resources, tools, and functionality to effectively transact and monitor how they do business with the Association.

IASB staff will be available at the member database kiosk from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and 1-4 p.m.

“The intent is to get one-on-one assistance to anyone who needs it,” said Nesa Brauer, a trainer with IASB’s Board Development team and the organizer of the Administrative Professionals’ Program. “We’ve added new systems to both membership and policy services, and we hope it will be beneficial to offer hands-on-help.”
