About Us

Story

Founded in the summer of 2015, GPN started as a community of public affairs professionals who wanted a free exchange of innovative ideas. With the common goal for providing professional development and networking opportunities at no cost to members, our core group quickly grew to a few hundred participants. Now with a formal board of industry leading professionals and a membership able to contribute at any level, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of in-person and online informationals, industry assets, and networking events, free to all those interested.

Vision

GPN offers an inclusive and progressive environment that encourages public affairs professionals of all levels to work together in shaping an industry that is rapidly defining itself. Through professional development programs, in-person and online educational opportunities, and networking events, we encourage all of our members to contribute in building an industry community at the fore-front of the American psyche.

Mission

Our mission at the Grassroots Professional Network is to provide a collaborative forum where communications, advocacy, and social professionals can progress our expanding industry.
