History of the Conference
The North Carolina Municipal and County Parks and Recreation Directors Conference is an annual education and networking event for North Carolina’s park and recreation directors. The first event was organized in 1947 under the leadership of the Department of Leisure Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill. Recreation Resources Service now assists the planning committee with coordinating and managing the conference. The conference mission, both then and now is to bring department directors together to discuss the challenges and opportunities for improving parks and recreation both within their own departments, and the state. Support for the conference from directors, retired directors, and partners from NC university park and recreation departments have maintained its relevance and purpose almost 70 years later.
The NC Parks and Recreation Directors Conference provides an invaluable opportunity to have access to direct decision makers. You will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with over 100 park and recreation directors under one roof at the conference exhibit hall.
