This week, current MESPA members will receive a letter and enrollment form in the US mail inviting you to join the new PK-12 Massachusetts School Administrators Association (MSAA). Please be sure to submit this for processing as you prepare for next year.
Note that this year’s payment will be made to the Massachusetts Secondary School Administrators Association (MSSAA) because the new name (MSAA) will not take effect until after August 1st, 2017.
