Involvement in GRPA has great benefits for all recreational professionals.  Beyond the professional development opportunities I have experienced, the value of networking with colleagues cannot be overstated.  GRPA also provides a foundation of support for promoting parks and recreation in your community through legislative advocacy, technical assistance, distributing grant information, research publications and relevant vendor contacts.  All park and recreational professionals should reap the benefits by becoming active with GRPA as we strive to provide quality facilities and programs to the respective citizens we serve.
