Typically, a professional service engagement is treated similar to a project, with a start and completion date, estimated costs quoted upfront, and an expected product at the conclusion. ASBA offers a broad range of professional services to school boards across the province.
Professional development includes education or skill improvement opportunities. ASBA delivers onsite workshops on a variety of topics. ASBA also offers custom workshops based on the unique needs and situation of the school board. Professional development is typically charged on a per event or course basis; however, this may depend on the complexity of the engagement.
Leadership services include offerings which may be on an individual basis, ad-hoc or one-time basis, and typically with no fixed timeline associated. Services within this category may include general advisory services, leadership coaching, as examples. Leadership services are typically charged on a direct hourly basis, or a retained service arrangement may be established.
