Call For Presentations

​NSPRA 2018 National Seminar
Proving the Value of Public Education

Hyatt Regency Orange County
Garden Grove, California
July 15-18, 2018

It’s time to share your most exciting, innovative and successful programs, campaigns, initiatives and best practices at the 2018 NSPRA National Seminar this coming July!

For 64 years, the NSPRA National Seminar has offered the best training and professional development available in all facets of school communication, public relations, marketing and public engagement. The outstanding reputation of the NSPRA Seminar is a direct reflection on the talent and commitment of those who share their knowledge and help their peers by attending and delivering quality presentations.

We are looking for sessions designed to share best practices and successful strategies in school communication – from core program areas (i.e., effective communication plans, research and evaluation strategies, media relations, marketing, internal communication, public engagement and parent involvement, etc.) to crisis management, diversity, equity and inclusion, social media, video and trending communication technologies, education advocacy, emerging issues and real-life or high profile case studies.

We are seeking presenters who offer insight, strategies and tactics, timely information and useful, hands-on resource materials along with relevant content and experiences that meet the high standards of our Seminar participants. In session selection, priority will be given to sessions with NSPRA members as lead or co-presenters. We are not interested in sales pitches or presentations by individuals or companies that are designed to feature and promote specific products and services.

The deadline for session proposal submissions is December 15, 2017. Please complete all the requested information on the Call for Presentations form and carefully review and sign the NSPRA Speaker Commitment Agreement. Clearly describe your session content.


You can submit your presentation proposal for the 2018 Call for Presentations quickly and easily online. Deadline for submitting proposals: Friday, December 15, 2017.
