PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Member schools have the opportunity to attend a bi-annual meeting to review industry partnerships and updates, as well as sharing feedback and discussing strategies to improve recruitment, training, and school business.
TRAVELING EVENT PROCEDURES
Member Schools/ Resort Trainers may request (by email) that an education or certification (Traveling Event) be added to our ‘published’ calendar. All requests for traveling events must be approved by the appropriate discipline Certification V. P. Requests are due by February 1 or three weeks prior to the event, whichever is earlier. Not all traveling events will be approved.
If the event is being paid for by the Resort, once approved, PSIA/AASI Admin will prepare an invoice based on the estimated ACTUAL COST (travel/ lodging/wages, etc) of providing the event.
Full payment must be received at least 10 days prior to the date the event is to take place. If the event is cancelled by the host resort, the payment will be returned less $ 50 administration fee. If the event is cancelled by the resort less than two days before, no refund will be issued.
If the event is paid for by member registration, we must have five (5) PAID signups at least 2 weeks prior to the event or it will be cancelled.
For Questions or more information, contact Mitch Dion, email@example.com.
