Who We Are
NESPRA is a dedicated chapter of NSPRA formed to provide professional development and networking. We look to address both regional and national issues, trends, and best practices in school public relations.
NESPRA's membership proudly represents a wide range of school districts and organizations. Our membership currently includes 100 members of statewide education agencies, large urban school districts, regional school districts, career technical education centers, and local suburban and rural districts.
NESPRA is open to anyone living in the six New England states or bordering Canadian provinces who work in any capacity in school public relations. Our membership includes or may include communications directors and managers, admissions coordinators, superintendents or administrators, and support staff who take on communications in districts without dedicated communications positions.
NSPRA formally approved NESPRA's charter in January 2022. View the charter.
