WRPA Needs Your Talent and Energy. Volunteer with Us Today!

Have you ever thought about giving back to WRPA? By volunteering, you gain valuable professional experience, support the broader Parks and Recreation field, and most importantly, you will have fun! Wherever you are in your career, there is place for you to both serve and grow with WRPA. It takes just a few hours of your time to make a huge impact.

Check out the volunteer opportunities available with the following committees:

  • Conference Committee - The conference committee is one of our largest committees that helps to oversee the WRPA Annual Conference & Tradeshow. Their purpose is to develop the goals and structure of the conference as well as to create the theme. The Annual Conference & Tradeshow draws 400+ attendees for 2-3 days of professional training. The conference is typically held in the spring and is an amazing way to network and learn from your colleagues.
  • Membership Committee - Coordinates membership retention, growth and new member outreach.  Help us create a welcoming environment for all of our current and future members!
  • Resource Development Committee - Oversees the management of sponsorship.  This committee is crucial to the funding of future programs and events for WRPA.  Help us gain new sponsors and pledges!
  • Student Connections Committee - This committee connects college students in recreation programs to professionals in the field while helping students gain experience, knowledge, and excitement in parks and recreation.
  • Volunteer Committee - Oversees the recruitment of new volunteers. Works with our other committees to find the positions that are needed and helps to promote to find the right volunteers.
