Get Ready for the OSPRA 2024 Annual Conference!

Tue, March 19, 2024 8:44 AM | Megan Mahoney (Administrator)

Oregon School Public Relations Association's (OSPRA) Spring Conference is almost here! Before you make the trip to Eugene, take just a couple minutes to read through the info and tips below to get ready.

What to Wear

There is no formal dress code for OSPRA’s Spring Conference. In the past, attendees have worn either business casual or casual attire, both of which are perfect! For those who registered early, you can wear your shirt on day 2 (on Fridays, we wear green).


Payment for parking for all guests will be taken at the parking gate. 

Attendees staying the night: You will be charged upon entry. Select the number of nights you’re staying, pay with a credit card, and you’ll receive a ticket that will allow you to go in and out of the parking lot throughout your stay. 

Attendees not staying the night: You will be charged when you leave. You will select “here for a group or event,” and you’ll receive a ticket. When you’re exiting the garage, scan the ticket and you’ll be charged based on the number of hours you were parked in the garage.


Join us for our Social after day 1 at our conference! This year, we are excited to host our social at J. Scott Cellars from 5-7pm. 

J. Scott Cellars is an upscale wine bar and tasting room in The Market District of downtown Eugene. The J. Scott Cellars brand features an extensive menu of extraordinary tasting wines of the Pacific Northwest, with 18 current and past vintages receiving the coveted 90 Pts and above from national publication, “Wine Enthusiast”!

Come on down for a drink and a chance to network with other school PR professionals.


OSPRA is providing breakfast on both days of the conference and lunch on day 1. Morning and afternoon snacks and beverages will also be available between meals.
