GSPRA has been awarded a "Mark of Distinction" by the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA). The organization was recognized for its conference "School PR All Stars: Get Your Head in the Game!" This recognition recognizes the efforts of state chapters in supporting NSPRA’s mission of building support for education through responsible public relations that leads to success for all students. GSPRA was also an NSPRA Exemplary Chapter in 2019.
GSPRA members enjoy monthly professional development with one-hour webinars. Recent topics include communicating in the time of COVID-19, DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion), and self-care for the school communications professional.
Instead of a regular webinar for January 2021, we look forward to holding our first-ever (and hopefully last-ever) virtual awards ceremony!
