News and Information

    • We are looking forward to the SEPA/WAC/MAPS conference in summer 2021 at Bays Mountain, check out the Great Western Observer (GWO) for additional information.


GPPA works with a wide variety of planetariums across the great plains. We have members in planetariums located in Elementary, Middle, Junior High, High Schools, Colleges, and Universities as well as planetariums in Museums, Science Centers, and Private businesses. It is from the wide variety of backgrounds GPPA gains its strength. GPPA has several advantages of membership including.

    • Fall and Spring Informal Meetings - workshops on specific tools in the planetarium field.

If you are just getting started in the community take a moment and read some of the GWO - Great Western Observer editions by following the link above.

GPPA annual dues are only $10. You can renew your membership at a Western Alliance Conference or by check to the address above or you may use the PayPal button below.

If you are new to the planetarium community then welcome, or a returning member then it is good to see you again.
