APRA is constantly seeking support from our members. There are a myriad of opportunities to help grow the Parks and Recreation profession and your resume. If you can’t afford to give much time, there are assignments that can match your availability. Many meetings are conducted where members can call in and be actively engaged. 

There are volunteer opportunities on weekends; there are volunteer opportunities that can last an entire year; and there are special assignments that are short range and specific. From serving on the board, on a committee or helping at some of our special events there is a place for you!
