There is no registration fee for the Leadership Speaker Series for those members of the Association holding the highest level of membership available to them in their leadership
Information on Wellness Spending Accounts
Parkland has confirmed the addition of a WSA for their Teachers, effective September 1, 2020. Our teams are in the process of finalizing this on system and the allocation emails will go out to all covered members on September 1, 2020, providing them with 90 days to make their credit allocations.
Each employer group is responsible for communicating the addition of this benefit to their respective members and, as Jocelyn mentioned, we do have brochures (electronic or hard copy) that can assist with this. Some employer groups are particular about how they are wanting to promote the WSA and given that it is an employer provided benefit, we felt that it is best for the employer to control the message that their covered members receive.
