Branches and Sections

The National Recreation and Park Association comprises 10 individual branches and sections, subgroups that represent the intricacies of parks and recreation--everything from aquatics to natural resources to therapeutic recreation. As a member of NRPA, you'll be permitted to join the one group that best fits your professional calling or personal interest. Like your membership in NRPA, your branch or section affiliation is a privilege and can be as awesome a responsibility as you're willing to make of it. It's the perfect complement to NRPA's national mission.
