Benefits of membership
Members also receive regular newsletters from both a state and national level, along with updates specifically focusing on secondary education, regular articles of interest and access to additional sources of information as required. Principals and Deputy Principals in State Education have a powerful voice through QSPA.We invite you to become a member of the Queensland Secondary Principals Association (QSPA), the peak professional body representing Principals and Deputy Principals in Queensland.
QSPA’s extensive representation gives members the opportunity to influence legislation, policy, strategic directions and professional development, as well as representation at the national level. In becoming a member you have the opportunity to significantly increase your contribution to public education in this state and join a professional organisation that also offers great collegiality and support. Being a member supports your colleagues.
As a member of QSPA you will automatically become a member of the Australian Secondary Principals Association (ASPA) which provides advocacy and influence at the national level. As your President I represent Queensland on the ASPA board.
Each year in June, approximately 250 Secondary Principals and Deputies from across the state gather in Brisbane for our state conference. We have gained a reputation for hosting an outstanding conference that includes international, national and local presenters, as well as leadership development workshops. Members of QSPA receive a substantial discount to our state conference.
We encourage you to join with your colleagues and become a member of QSPA. Each region across the state has a number of representatives who gather together four times each year as our State Council, to bring issues for debate and progression to senior officers of the department and the Minister. Our regional representatives also hold branch meetings in their region throughout the year.
