In this learning session we will take a look at the changing demographics and consider some ways in which recreation and activity professionals can shift their perspectives and programs to re-define activities. This session is preapproved for one hour of continuing education by NAAPCC. A completion certificate is available by mail or email after the session evaluation is completed by each participant.
