    Online registration is now open for the annual conference that will take place on March 3-4, 2022 at Great Wolf Lodge in LaGrange! We are excited to welcome members of the Alabama School Public Relations Association this year to our 1½ day conference.

    We have a great line-up of speakers including two distinguished national speakers joining us. These include Andrea Gribble from #SocialSchool4EDU and former television reporter, communication expert and author Patricia Weinzapfel from Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation in Indiana. This conference will be filled with hands-on professional development and networking opportunities that you won’t want to miss.

    In addition to these national speakers, we would like to provide GSPRA and ALSPRA members with a speaking opportunity. If you are interested in presenting a 30 minute back-to-back mini session on Friday, March 4, please submit your proposal here. Proposals must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, November 19.

    Full conference participation is $200 (partial attendance options available), and the registration deadline is Friday, December 17. Those who register and pay by Friday, November 19 will be entered into the Early Bird Drawing for a chance to receive a free room upgrade to a Grizzly Bear Suite during their stay.
