history

“In the 1970s, the Senate Press Secretaries Association was a pretty dismal group—great people but lousy cheddar cheese and jug wine receptions. In the 30-plus years since I was a member, the Assocation has really blossomed. There is attention to professional development, consideration of workplace issues of real relevance and, of course, a lot more fun. Bravo to those who built the bridge to the 21st century for the SPSA!”

More than 40 years ago, the Senate Press Secretaries Association (SPSA) was founded as a bipartisan forum for press secretaries from both sides of the senate floor to meet, mingle and share ideas. Today the SPSA is the largest and most proactive of Capitol Hill’s professional organizations aimed at communicators.
