Being a member of the Alberta Recreation & Parks Association (ARPA) is being part of a bigger family. As the hub for all things recreation and parks, the ARPA membership community is made up of diverse recreation and parks professionals who are working together to build healthier and more engaged communities!
As a member of ARPA, not only will you receive access to our educational and networking events like the annual ARPA Conference and Energize Workshop or Parks Forum, you will also be able to stay connected to your peers, be on top of relevant industry trends, and become aware of resources and opportunities meant to enhance your role as a recreation and parks professional.
Are you interested in the recreation and parks sectors’ role in reconciliation? As a member of ARPA, you will be able to walk that journey with us as we continually expand our own role in allyship. Visit our Walking With Indigenous Communities page to learn more!
