Founded in 1944 and incorporated in 1948, the North Carolina Recreation & Park Association (NCRPA) is a nonprofit education and advocacy organization, dedicated to the advancement of the park, recreation and leisure profession in our state.
We have a 31 person board of directors with 27 voting members that meets quarterly and is responsible for the overall operation of the organization. Officers, Region and Section chairs are elected on an annual basis. Committee chairs and agency liaisons are appointed by the president or selected by the agency they represent. NRPA Southern Region representatives are elected by NRPA members and they select one person to serve as their voting representative. The NCRPA By-laws provides more information on the organization structure.
Based in Raleigh, our 3-person staff coordinates the daily functions of operations and services provided.
