2019 National Association of State Park Directors Conference
The mission of NASPD is to promote and advance the state park systems of America for their own significance, as well as for their important contributions to the nation’s environment, heritage, health, and economy.
Arkansas State Park Director Grady Spann says, "We are honored to host the 2019 National Association of State Park Directors (NASPD) Conference Sept. 2-6 in Rogers, located in the beautiful Ozark Mountains of northwest Arkansas. We look forward to welcoming state park and federal agency leaders from across North America, as well as leaders in the outdoor recreation industry.
The 2019 conference will center on the theme of Honoring Tradition - Seeking Innovation. Honoring Tradition will focus on the foundation of America's state Parks that was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), the custom of welcoming guests to our parks, and the legacy of the Park Ranger. Seeking Innovation will look at embracing the future generations for our parks, and being relevant through new technologies, experiences, opportunities."
