After reviewing NSPRA member feedback and anticipating that the COVID-19 vaccine will be in wide distribution by late spring, association leaders are moving forward in developing a hybrid NSPRA National Seminar with virtual and in-person programs. The goal is to host an in-person Seminar from July 11-14, 2021, at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel and to offer learning and networking through a virtual platform. 

NSPRA is working closely with New Orleans tourism officials and the Sheraton New Orleans as well as following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to promote healthy behaviors in public gatherings. NSPRA will be implementing several strategies for the in-person event to maintain healthy operations. More information will be shared once plans are fully developed. 

The call for presentation proposals is now open! Before submitting your presentation proposal, please review NSPRA's 5 Tips to a Great Presentation Proposal and 10 Tips to Earn Top Ratings as a Presenter. Then submit your proposal at survey.k12insight.com/r/cfp2021​ by Friday, Jan. 29, 2021, for a chance to share your school public relations story with a national audience. 

While many other details are yet to be determined, NSPRA will share more information about Seminar registration and the opening of the hotel block in the coming weeks.
