Become a Member of MSPRA!
If you’re responsible for communicating with students, staff, parents and local residents about your school, you need MSPRA - even if “communication” is not part of your job title, or falls under “other duties as assigned” in your primary role. As an MSPRA member, you will be part of one of the most highly recognized school public relations chapters in the country. Within our ranks are award winning, highly-qualified professionals who are eager to support their fellow communicators.
