NRPA advocacy in action online – National Recreation and Park Association, online advocacy tool – Brief Article
The majority of NRPA members have said that one of the most important benefits of NRPA membership is having a voice in Washington. NRPA can be truly effective as an advocate for parks and recreation only if its members are informed and willing to participate. Since NRPA launched its new online advocacy tool in the spring, the response has been encouraging. Hundreds of NRPA members have shown they are willing to take action by sending an e-mail, making a phone call or writing a letter to their senators and representatives in the U.S. Congress. These kinds of actions are guaranteed to get result–any Capitol Hill staffer will tell you that nothing gets legislators’ attention like messages from constituents.
If you would like to receive occasional messages regarding the activities of Congress on matters of national and state interest relating to parks and recreation, sign up to be part of RecreAction. NRPA’s online advocacy network. To join, go to http://gaO.org/nrpa/join.html.
