NSPA Joins ParticipACTION Partner Network
In April 2011, NSPA became a member of the ParticipACTION Partner Network, a national network of not-for-profit and public sector organizations dedicated to promotion of physical activity and sport participation.
Membership in the network provides NSPA with access to the best information and resources available in the field of physical activity, as well as access to ParticipACTION public education, and membership in the Sport Information Resource Centre (SIRC).
Additional information on the Partner Network can be found at http://www.participaction.com/en-us/ForPartnersAndStakeholders/ParticipACTIONPartnerNetwork.aspx.
If you have a sport / physical activity related project that might benefit from access to the Network's resources, please contact the NSPA Executive Director for assistance: firstname.lastname@example.org.
