Health and Wellness is a growing area in the park and recreation profession. As the Recreation and Park profession changes, our association needs to stay relevant to the needs of our members. Therefore, the KRPA board has voted to change the TR/Aging branch to the Wellness branch.
Our branches contribute to the educational sessions at the KRPA conference, host workshops and provide networking opportunities for our members to meet others in similar areas of the profession. We will continue to provide educational sessions geared toward TR and aging but will broaden the education to include more health and wellness opportunities.
We encourage all members who have an interest or job responsibilities related to wellness to consider running for the branch board. We hope to make this branch a huge success.
