MASSP is a proud affliate of the National Association of Secondary School Principals located in Reston Virginia. As a unified state, members are required to join both the national and state organizations. Individual membership is not permitted. However, a variety of benefits flow to MASSP members that are not available to those in non-unified states due to this arrangement:

  • $2,000,000 professional liability coverage per member (Doubled!)
  • $1,000 legal reimbursement per member with a cap of $10,000
  • Access to PLAC (Principal’s Legislative Action Center) ($6,000 value) to send action alerts on state policy issues. NASSPs contract would be extended for states to personalize for their use. Contact the NASSP Advocacy Department for more details.
  • A voucher for NASSP professional development services/resources ($10,000 value). This voucher can be used toward speakers, workshops, research, in-state training, consultations, publications, toolkits—whatever the state needs to provide leadership development to its members. Contact the NASSP Professional Development Department for more details.
