Administrative history

The Alberta Provincial Parks Alumni Association (APPAA) was initiated at the 60th anniversary Alumni Reunion and Campout in July of 1992 and incorporated as an association on November 12th 1993. The purpose of the association is to provide ex-employees of Alberta Provincial Parks an opportunity to keep in touch with each other and with the Parks System. One of the major activities of the association is to raise money for Provincial Park initiatives and projects e.g. the development of areas and facilities at Miquelon Lake Provincial Park. Additionally, the Association acts as a special interest group petitioning the government regarding issues like the possible deregulation and privatization of park campgrounds and recreation areas. The association’s membership is made up of alumni of the Alberta Parks service and their spouses.

The Association is controlled and managed by a governing Board of Directors. The bylaws of the association state that the board should consist of between six and ten directors each of whom should be members in good standing. Term limits of the executive vary, two members hold three year terms and two hold two year terms according to the association’s bylaws. The remaining director positions are held for one year, but board members can be re-elected to their position at the end of their term. The association’s executive meets in the autumn and spring of every year accompanied by an alumni luncheon. The annual general meeting and alumni campout is held every July in a Provincial Park. The Associations newsletter, “Parks Alumni Review” is published biannually with one edition in the spring and one in the winter.
