NACPRO is proud to be affiliated with:

The National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA)

The National Association of Counties (NACo)

NACPRO created a group on NRPA Connect, an online forum for the exchange of information and knowledge. We like to think of this as our Best Practices Forum, a place where you can post your pressing issues and get informed suggestions from colleagues.

Here’s how it works: The Email Listserv functions like a mailing list.  Someone posts a question on the listserv by either logging into NACPRO Connect Group or by sending an email to NACPRO@nrpaconnect.org.  That email goes out to all subscribers.  Subscribers can respond with suggestions, which in turn are also shared with the subscribers. 

You do not need to be a member of NRPA to join the group, but you will need to create a free account.  Once you are logged in, search for the NACPRO Group, join our group, and setup your Delivery Settings.

Next time you are looking for good advice – post a message to the listserv for some timely answers.
