Get to Know TASPA's New President

Christie Volmer
TASPA 2016 President

I am excited and honored for this opportunity to serve as the TASPA Board President. TASPA is an amazing organization with a Vision of Learning, Leading and Making a Difference. A Mission to engage and develop Human Resource professionals by enhancing HR services in school districts.
