The Nevada Recreation and Park Society (NRPS) is a membership based 501(c)(3) nonprofit professional organization and gained affiliation with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) in 1964. NRPS has been actively supporting the development of the recreation, parks, and leisure professions from that year forward. The Society filed articles of incorporation with the State of Nevada in March 1974. NRPS is divided into north and south districts, which operate independently. The NRPS President is elected by the Society’s membership. The office and the Society’s annual conference alternate from the north during even-numbered years, to the south during odd-numbered years. The Society annually awards at least two academic scholarships, program and facility excellence awards, and recognizes in-state distinguished professionals with various awards.
