We would like to take this opportunity to THANK the 2017 NRPA Connect Network Leadership and WELCOME the 2018 NRPA Connect Network Leadership. The 2018 Leaders are already well along in their planning for 2018 with new initiatives, including improving the connection professionals make through NRPA Connect, additional virtual roundtables, possible mentoring opportunities and much more. An easy way to grow your professional network is to join and become active in one of the following NRPA Connect Networks today:
