Mission and History of the Employees & Alumni Association of the National Park Service

The Employees & Alumni Association of the National Park Service, “the E&AA”, is a 501(c) (4) membership organization dedicated to promoting the values and ideals of the National Park Service family and the mission of the National Park Service.

Founded in 1955 at a superintendents' conference and incorporated in 1957, the E&AA membership is a diverse group of current employees, alumni, volunteers and other interested people who see the National Park Service and their relationships with Park Service friends and colleagues as an important part of their lives. They share a common interest and appreciation of our national park system and promote its value to all.
