We are excited to host the first-ever hybrid experience of the 2021 NRPA Annual Conference this fall in Nashville, Tennessee. September 21–23, 2021, park and recreation professionals, champions and industry suppliers will have the opportunity to attend the conference in-person or virtually.

By offering a hybrid experience, we look forward to providing even more people with the opportunity to network with peers, learn from experts in the field, and connect with industry suppliers. The 2021 NRPA Annual Conference virtual and in-person options will offer attendance opportunities that meet personal and agency budget and travel preferences. We are dedicated to the same high-quality educational programming NRPA is known for — because everyone deserves a great conference!

Important Notice: The safety of our staff and attendees is of the utmost importance to NRPA. We will follow all federal, state and local guidelines set for in-person gatherings as well as recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). In-person attendees can anticipate daily health and wellness check points, physical distancing and face covering requirements as well as other health and safety protocols. If, at any time, NRPA feels we cannot create and maintain a safe in-person event or if any federal, state or local restrictions prevent us from hosting an in-person event, NRPA will cancel the in-person component while continuing to offer a quality virtual event.
