    The 2019 MOSPRA Fall Conference is set for November 7 - 8, at the University Plaza Hotel in Springfield, Missouri.  Be sure to join your school communications colleagues for two great days of powerful professional development.  


    Thursday Keynote Presenter:  Linda Locke

    How strong is your school district’s brand?  Does your community know what your district stands for?  If your brand comes under attack, are you prepared?  This fall we are pleased to have Linda Locke, partner in Standing Partnership and the past senior vice president and group head of Reputation and Issues Management for MasterCard Worldwide as our Thursday presenter. Linda’s strengths lie in developing strategy and analytics for companies, and helping leaders understand how people’s feelings about their services affect their businesses. A leader of innovation, Linda led the launch of social media and global crisis communications planning, and she developed MasterCard’s first reputational risk management program.


    Friday Presenter:  Jim Dunn

    On Friday we will hear from former NSPRA President and MOSPRA leader, Jim Dunn, APR.  Jim brings an unbelieveably rich history in many areas of public relations and communications.  Jim will share with us “The Power of Storytelling in Developing and Protecting Your Brand.”
