NYSRPS provides many educational opportunities for its park, recreation and therapeutic professionals throughout New York State. The following are just a few ways we continually seek to provide the best education for our membership. At every opportunity there is networking and information sharing between professionals that tends to be the best source of practical education available.

Conferences and Seminars- NYSRPS coordinates two major conferences a year; the Downstate Conference in November and the Annual Conference and Expo in April. Throughout the year regional workshops are held as well to allow our membership educational opportunities, the chance to earn CEUs and ways to network with their peers.
