The National Association of Activity Professionals (NAAP), the sole organization that represents activity professionals only in geriatric settings, established National Activity Professionals Day. Activity associations around the country were polled in 1980 to see if they required a national association. The survey led to the formation of NAAP, a small but committed group of activity professionals. In a few years, Sister Pat Murphy was chosen to serve as NAAP’s first president as the organization saw significant growth. In recognition of the vital role that activity professionals play in enhancing the lives of those under their care, NAAP established National Activity Professionals Day. 1984 saw the celebration of the first National Activity Professionals Day.

<p>NAAP later extended the festivities to include a full week of festivities. National Activity Professionals Week, which runs from today through Sunday, is a seven-day celebration of the incredible work that activity professionals produce.
