Happy Monday,

Thank you to all those who attend the 2015 Carolinas Joint Conference last week! NCRPA team, as well as professionals and students from across the states of North and South Carolina assembled together at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. The conference was jam packed with educational, networking and social event opportunities that many took advantage of! Even though conference is over, we thought now would be a good time to share some tips on how you can stay active while on the go! When you are traveling it is essential to be mindful of staying committed to living a healthy and active lifestyle. While I was away at conference, it made me realize how important it is to continue to be healthy to remain energetic and alert during the long day. My blog discusses active and healthy eating recommendations for when you are away from home. You can share these ideas and suggestions with your department and community. Read my blog for more information.

Please note,our next webinar will take place onTuesday, November 10that 1:00pm. Aaron Davis andKristen Herndonfrom Graham Recreation and Parks Department, will be hosting. The topic will focus on the Graham Walks program, which is a 5 week incentive-based walking program held during the spring and fall. Programs like Graham Walks generates inspiration within the community for members to reach the recommended exercise goal times per week. Please register for the webinar to learn more of how you can start programs like Grahams within your own department:

If you have any advice or tips on living a healthy and balanced lifestyle at work conferences then we want to hear from you!Email us your ideas or submit them on the wellnesssite here: (,
