New Member Network

New to school PR? New to INSPRA? Then the New Member Network is for you!

The New Member Network replaced the previous one-to-one mentoring program for professionals who are new to school public relations or new to INSPRA. All meetings take place via video conference and are free to INSPRA members.

Year One
At four meetings over the course of the first year, participants learn about the benefits of and how to get the most from their INSPRA membership as well as general professional development sessions.

Year Two (beginning 2020-21)
The second year of the program builds off year one with more specialized topics, driven in large part by participants’ needs.
