Connect - Educate - Inspire!

Please join us from November 24 – 25, 2021 for an online parks and recreation Conference!

At the 2021 SPRA Conference, you’ll hear from passionate community leaders, inspiring trend-setters, and from courageous people who enjoy making a difference in the lives of others!

Our theme, “Connect – Educate – Inspire,” draws on the concept of how we continuously find new ways to connect and share knowledge to inspire each other to provide new and creative experiences within our communities. Our passion for overall wellness, including parks and recreation spaces, places and programs has only grown stronger since 2020!

Registration for the Conference is now closed.
