The Society of Outdoor Recreation Professionals (SORP) is proud to present the 2024 National Outdoor Recreation Conference (NORC) – Stewarding People, Place, and Play. 

The National Outdoor Recreation Conference (NORC) is the premiere conference for outdoor recreation professionals with opportunities for learning, networking, and field-based case studies. During each conference, we create a program that inspires, challenges, and empowers the broad community of outdoor recreation professionals. 

NORC brings together over 400 people that include recreation resource planners, land managers, policy makers, tourism and destination stewardship partners, researchers, consultants, innovators, and leaders in outdoor recreation. And this year’s conference promises to be an engaging 4-day format filled with workshops, several tracks of concurrent sessions, and a stellar lineup of keynotes. 

These are pivotal times for outdoor recreation. Our goal is to present a conference and program that is solutions-forward and equity-centric. 

We hope you will join us!
