MESPA professional development is designed to meet the needs of today's principals. Working with members, MESPA identifies the most relevant and engaging professional development topics each year to ensure MN principals have the training and support they need.
"Institute and MESPA workshops help keep principals informed with high quality professional development... MESPA keeps us connected, provides us with assistance, and supports us with our needs.”
– Jeffrey Lund, Marshall County Central Schools
