If you are an aspiring career professional in the amusement park and attractions industry, this series of webinars is designed to help boost your career and provide you with new ideas and networking opportunities. All of these webinars are free for IAAPA members.

Did you know? Many young professionals are valid IAAPA members and may not even realize it. If you are a full-time, regular employee of a company that is an IAAPA member, then you are automatically included under your company's membership (which means you may attend any of our free members-only webinars, sign up for our daily NewsFlash messages, access members-only resources on our website, and more).
If you are not currently an IAAPA member, and do not work for a member company, you may qualify for an affordable Young Professional category of membership. Learn more here.
