NJSPRA sponsors a number of in-person events throughout the year with the goal of providing professional development and networking opportunities for our membersIn response to the COVID-19 pandemic, programs were held virtually and on a somewhat modified schedule during the latter part of 2020 and through the 2020-21 school year.

We anticipate the 2021-22 school year to be a blend of in-person and virtual programming and include workshops, member meet-ups, our Communication Awards celebration, and our Annual Meeting. SEE OUR FALL EVENTS already planned below. Attendance to all of these events are included in your NJSPRA Membership. In addition, we hold special events as needs and occasions arise including focused seminars on timely topics for NJ schools as well as regional events with neighboring state SPRA chapters.

Announcements and registration information about each event is posted here, emailed to members and other subscribers and posted on our social media channels. To be added to our subscriber list, contact us at njspracommunications@gmail.com

    Led by New Jersey School Boards Association Leaders
    Janet Bamford, Chief Public Affairs Officer
    Mary Ann Friedman, Field Service Representative

    With controversy on masks, virtual learning, DEI work, Critical Race Theory, and other topics, Board meetings are making headlines in the wrong way and communicating with the public on these topics has become challenging. In this workshop, experienced representatives from the New Jersey School Boards Association will provide strategies on helping to restore civility to Board meetings and tips on communicating with the public.
