What is NCAPA?
The North Carolina Activity Professional Association (NCAPA) is a not-for-profit organization of activity professionals founded in April of 1983. Its purpose is to expand and improve the quality of care in the programs for the elderly/infirm its members serve. NCAPA provides a vehicle to better interaction and communication between activity professionals, regulatory agencies and other health care professional groups. NCAPA promotes and provides appropriate educational opportunities to meet the needs of the people it serves and keeps its members abreast of legislation affecting the activity profession. NCAPA strives to advance the recognition of this unique profession.
Our board is made up of activity professionals spanning the state of North Carolina. The board consists of 7 elected officers, 9 District representatives and 10 committee chairs.
Some of the districts were in existence even before NCAPA was established. Others formed as the organization expanded to better serve activity professionals in their geographical location in the state. Each district appoints a representative to sit on the Board serving as laison. NCAPA’s districts include Sandhills, Eastern, Western Piedmont, Geriatric Activity Professionals (GAPP), Coastal, Metrolina (MAPA), Piedmont, Blue Ridge ( BRAPA), and Eastern Piedmont. Committee chairs and officers are most times also members of the districts. Committee chairs are appointed by the president.

NCAPA needs you! In fact, activity professionals NEED activity professionals in such a growing and ever changing occupation. Both NCAPA and your area district provide continuing education and a wonderful opportunity to network with other activity professionals who do the same thing you do on a day to day basis. Nobody else in your facility does the same job you do and another activity professional may be your best sounding board and supporter.
