About Us

The Iowa Association of Activity Professionals was organized over 25 years ago. IAAP offers education and networking for activity professionals across the entire state. It is governed by a Board of Directors that are elected by the attendees. Click into our Conference page to learn more about our conventions.

Our mission is to provide “quality of life” for our clients through an ongoing balance of physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional activities. We encourage self-expression, self-discovery and life long learning. We help the activity professional accomplish this by providing educational opportunities, networking, resource exchange and individual peer support.

The Iowa Activity Professionals Association (IAAP) is comprised of those professionals who work primarily in geriatric settings; retirement, assisted living, adult day programs, senior centers, and long term nursing facilities.
