Annual Leaders' Meeting

The National School Public Relations Association convenes a Leaders' Meeting for incoming chapter officers, project team/committee leaders and anyone interested in holding a state/regional chapter or national leadership position at the NSPRA National Seminar each year. The meeting allows chapter leaders to share their successes and NSPRA to provide updates and information for the coming year. It is held on Sundays, the first official day of the Seminar, from 8-11:45 a.m.

Watch a recording of the 2020 Leaders’ Meeting, which was held virtually via Cisco Webex in July. The deadlines and reporting forms that were referenced during the Leaders' Meeting are provided below.
