COVID-19 Resource Hub

Our priority as your association is the health of our staff, members and their families and to support you in your professional lives.

While we can’t see you in person, we have a busy calendar to keep you connected and informed through this time. View our event calendar to find ways you can keep connected over the next two weeks, with more to come.

We have developed a Resource Hub to keep our industry connected, which will include information developed by your board, MEPRA members and partners to support the profession at a time when the importance of clear and ethical communication is vital.

At this difficult time, we are focused more than ever on bringing people together and supporting each other.  We are inviting you to share relevant resources or best practice guides to include in the resource hub which can support the wider industry so we can get through this together. Together we will weather this storm.

To contribute, please email sabrina@mepra.org
