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. 

This year the theme is “Out of This World” because you all provide service to your communities each and every day that is out of this world! We hope to support that with a Conference that will refuel you into orbit so that you can not only have a time to celebrate accomplishments, but prepare for the future of your organization. 



We are looking for anyone who would like to be a part of a Buddy program for Conference where we will match you up with someone that you can check in with before Conference and then maybe make a plan to meet up with at Conference. The goal is to break down some of the barriers for a new person to come to Conference and meet new people. Let us know if you want to be involved!

Here is a blank planning sheet to help you organize your Conference Experience!
