Committees Leadership

The Florida Recreation and Park Association relies heavily on volunteer resources to carry out the programs of the Association.  Volunteers work countless hours, and we can not say thank you enough to the individuals who contribute their time and talent to assist in the delivery of services to the FRPA membership.

To you for all the work you do, we say Thank You!  To those who wish to become involved, we say Welcome and we look forward to working with you.
