PASC to Host Workshop for Activity Advisors on July 8 & 9
Why should students be the only ones to attend a summer workshop? Under the leadership of PASC Workshop Directors Andy Costanzo and Kathy Coll, PASC will sponsor a workshop that will reach out to student council advisors, class advisors, NHS advisors, and club advisors.
At this past State Conference in Boyertown, all advisors experienced a “taste” of some of the topics to be covered at the seminar, including stress management, how to run a meeting, publicity techniques, and motivating others. Details will be developed during the next six weeks and will be presented to the PASC Board in early March. But, here is what advisors can expect this summer.
• Effective use of technology for advisors
• Principles of situational advising
• Working effectively with the administration
• Parliamentary procedure/ meeting skills
• Stress management for busy advisors
• Icebreakers and activities to increase student involvement
• The Value of Co-Curricular Activities in the Educational Process
• Idea exchange session
• Organizational and time management tips
• Dealing with finances of student activities
Workshop program details, including titles and descriptions of large sessions and small group breakouts and all registration information, will be posted on the PASC website in March. Please mark your calendars now and start talking with other activity advisors in your school or area school districts about car-pooling to attend. Check with your school district for funding. ( July 1 begins a new school year with new funds available.)
Don’t miss this hands-on seminar that will provide you with a notebook of resources and contacts to help you have a great 2014–2015 school year as an advisor.
