2024 Virtual Town Hall Series: Topics in School Based Practice

School-based SLPs, you’re invited! The ASHA School Services in Speech-Language Pathology team is hosting a free virtual town hall series in 2024. The series includes five virtual events, each occurring from 7:00–8:30 p.m. ET.

Compensation Conversation Town Hall

Compensation Conversation—What SLPs in Schools Need to Know About Negotiating Salaries

Wednesday, March 6, 2024 | 7:00–8:30 p.m., ET

The first town hall in 2024 focuses on strategies to improve salary and compensation.

Panelists come from school districts of all sizes across the country. They’ll share their experiences and ideas to accomplish goals like these:

  • get a salary increase
  • achieve a salary supplement or stipend
  • negotiate a separate salary pay scale for SLPs
  • get reimbursement for professional certification and licensure
  • earn financial support to attend relevant professional development

After attending this town hall, you’ll be able to

  • identify at least two strategies to improve your compensation and benefits
  • determine collaborators to make a difference in your compensation and benefits

SLPs earn 1.5 professional development hours (PDHs) for participating. School administrators are also welcome to attend.

A certificate of attendance will be provided at the end of the live event. Participants can use these PDHs for certification maintenance and must track them.
