Plan to Join Us at Conference

I’m almost certain that nearly all of the programs and camps are at capacity. If you are experiencing the growth this year, it’s probably due to people feeling safer in crowds now.

In the midst of the excitement, there can be some challenges. Here are a few safety tips as we move forward.
1. Make sure you continue to practice COVID-19 cleaning protocols.
2. Wash hands thoroughly and often.
3. Stay hydrated.
4. Take breaks.
5. Keep masks available.

Conference ’23 Movin’ & Groovin’ is upon us. I hope that you are making plans to be with us. This year’s conference is packed with education, off sites, networking, etc. The conference name is definitely befitting of the plans.

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.
