The KRPA Professional Development Committee plays an important role in helping plan and coordinate Tomorrow's Leaders and the KRPA-MRPA Executive Forum. Tomorrow's Leaders is the association's annual three-day workshop for young professionals in parks and recreation. The Executive Forum is a two day workshop for mid level managers and directors, which is hosted by KRPA every other year. 

In addition, the Professional Development Committee explores other opportunities to provide learning programs or events which help further the education of park and recreation professionals in Kansas.
