What is PSP anyway?
The Professional Standards Program (PSP) is a voluntary program established by the National Association of Educational Office Professionals (NAEOP) to encourage office professionals to grow professionally. The four components include 1) experience in an educational office setting, 2) education, 3) in-service, and 4) association responsibility. PSP is for everyone. As an affiliate of the NAEOP, WAEOP promotes PSP and supports people who are working on certificates. You can get more information at www.naeop.org on the PSP page.
Have you earned a PSP Certificate? Each April, we celebrate each member who has earned any level of PSP certificate within the past year. If you earned a PSP certificate, please come to the annual conference April 28th & 29 so we can honor you for your accomplishment. The certificates are a tangible representation of many hours of in-service training, professional development, committee work and membership in your professional organizations. They are evidence of your commitment to professionalism and lifelong learning. Come to conference so your peers can recognize your accomplishments and be inspired toward their own. Please contact your PSP Chairperson, Cheryl Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
