With careful thought and planning by the ASPA Board Officers, we will forge ahead with our 2022 convention. This year’s convention will be a nice adjustment back to what we love so much: seeing each of you once again! We are working overtime to bring you the best convention experience ever! The theme, Back To The Future, refers not only to this unique period we’ve been in, but also reflects on the progress we’ve made in the last year in reference to high school media programs around the state, which have become more merged and efficient than ever.

We are so happy to be back! 😌

Don’t miss it!
