FRPA's Annual Conference is a yearly gathering of park and recreation professionals from throughout the state of Florida. The Conference features workshops and sessions curated to build the park and recreation professional's skill set. Presenters include professionals from aquatics, park administration, athletics, recreation, childcare, programming, park maintenance and more. General Sessions bring together the entire delegation to participate in a presentation given by professional speakers. A trade show and exhibit hall brings supply and service vendors to one place for face-to-face meetings with professionals. Throughout the week, delegates have opportunities to network with professionals from other agencies and exchange information for future contact. Each year, Conference features an evening social to enjoy each other's company and have fun. 

Gold Agency Members have the opportunity to register up to five non-members at the Member Rate for the 2024 Conference. Please be sure to select the proper ticket if you are using one of these registrations.
