The Georgia School Public Relations Association (GSPRA) was chartered in 1973. We are a professional organization of school communicators and school-community relations specialists. Your title doesn't have to say 'Communications' or 'Public Relations' to be a member of GSPRA. Those districts that have a PR, Communications, or Community Engagement function are all welcome to join GSPRA. If that is a Superintendent, great! If that is a person who performs the role of community engagement, great! There are tools that we have to help you be successful in reaching your community members.
GSPRA is an affiliate of the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) and was designated as a Blue Ribbon Chapter of NSPRA for 25 years until the launch of the NSPRA Mark of Distinction Awards. In 2010 and in 2015, GSPRA earned NSPRA's Mark of Distinction as an Exemplary Chapter. GSPRA members have also earned the prestigious Awards for Distinguished Service in both the single project and year-round project categories.
GSPRA is a vital medium for exchanging information across the state. With idea sharing and knowledge sessions, our professional organization provides the tools needed to be a successful school communicator. Our members are our biggest assets as we have newcomers to school PR as well as veterans. We are enriched by the addition of each member.
GSPRA offers many quality services, resources, and support for our members; including mentoring for new communication staffers. There are regional and statewide conference opportunities that each communicator can benefit.
