PRESIDENT's MESSAGE: 
Reconnecting in New (and Old) Ways!

Hello, TRPA family! It has been quite the year, and my term as your TRPA president is quickly coming to an end. We as a TRPA Board have been very busy providing the Association and our members with many educational opportunities and have made great strides in improving the Association as a whole. A big reason fall is my favorite season is that it’s conference season! This is a wonderful opportunity for members to reconnect with each other, network and share your wonderful stories (and a few horror stories) with your fellow parks and recreation professionals.   Read more in the current TRPA magazine

TRPA/TRPEF Joint Membership 

The Tennessee Recreation and Parks Education Foundation (TRPEF) provides scholarships to students and professionals and offers a special scholarship for CPRP/CPRE certifications.  TRPEF is funded through annual memberships and fundraising efforts.  In an attempt to make it easier to pay your TRPEF dues, TRPA and TRPEF have created a joint membership program for professional, citizen, and agency members.  When you renew your 2022/23 membership the system will renew for both memberships.  If you wish to not be a member of one of the organizations, please call the TRPA staff at 615-790-0041 for assistance.
