GASPA has supported school district human resource professionals throughout Georgia since 1966.
The first planning session for the organization of a state-wide personnel association in Georgia took place in 1966 during a meeting in Atlanta of the Georgia Education Association, which later became the Georgia Association of Educators. A group of personnel administrators in attendance at the conference determined that organizing into an affiliate group would provide the opportunity during the GAE conferences for school personnel administrators to share information and find solutions to common problems.
Although no longer an affiliate of GAE, this collaboration of personnel administrators have extended in scope and influence to the present day organization, the Georgia Association of School Personnel Administrators (GASPA). Currently, GASPA provides training for personnel administrators and other educational leaders in the state. It has become a viable state organization having an influence on state laws, regulations and agencies.
As an affiliate of the American Association of School Personnel Administrators (AASPA) and most recently in 2012 becoming an affiliate of the Georgia Association of Educational Leaders (GAEL), GASPA has earned national recognition; and its members have had the opportunity to participate in the development of personnel policies and procedures of national significance.
