Parks & Recreation Advocacy

Legislative advocacy is a top priority of the Michigan Recreation and Park Association. mParks advocates for state and federal policies that support essential parks and recreation services. The Association's Public Policy Committee monitors legislation related to parks, tourism and recreation issues, suggests positions to the Board of Directors, and keeps the membership informed.
