INTRODUCING YOUR NEW MEMBERSHIP EXPERIENCE

It is important that your professional association is able to keep up with ways to meet the needs of you, the professional. FRPA recently made the switch to a new membership management software program after a decade of using the same one. This change has allowed us to streamline much of the processes that take place while managing the membership, all while providing a much more 'user-friendly' experience for you all.  Linked on the page below are some tips for getting started and some videos to walk you through setting up your account. This member portal will be your go-to place for all things FRPA.

2024 AGENCY SUMMIT

The annual FRPA Agency Summit is an ideal time for agency directors and assistant director level staff to connect with others of like positions throughout the state to learn about and discuss relative topics in the park and recreation field. Thank you to everyone who responded to the survey we sent asking about the feasibility of hosting this event in The Keys. We had many more people than not say that they could attend this event and we are glad to be able to feature and visit a part of the state that often gets left out of our education events. The Summit will take place at the Key West Beachside Hotel.
