*Agency Definition

An agency is defined as one department within a jurisdiction (city, county, town, etc.) that provides park and/or recreation services. Jurisdictions that have multiple agencies that provide park and/or recreation services must join at the individual agency level and not at the jurisdictional level. For example, if your county has a Department of Parks and a separate Department of Recreation, each department (agency) would become individual premier agencies and count the total number of employees separately by department to determine premier level. This also applies to military units and tribal lands/reservations. In those cases, individual military installations or bases or individual tribal lands/reservations would join as individual premier agencies.
