I first became involved with CUPRAP more than 20 years ago when I worked at a small liberal arts college. When I left that position to become Director of Communications at an independent college preparatory boarding school, I wanted to remain involved with CUPRAP “ even though, at that time, other secondary schools were not yet members. I knew CUPRAP would continue to be an invaluable professional resource. CUPRAP conferences are best in class in terms of offering relevant information, training, networking, and inspiration. Furthermore, the culture of CUPRAP is very collaborative and collegial.
