Development Committee

We are working to encourage everyone that cares about play and its value to society to join with us and become a member of the coalition. There is no membership fee. Instead we require your commitment to play and your willingness to share information about play and its value with colleagues, members of your organization, and others when appropriate. We also ask that you share with us any information you come across that provides evidence for the value of play.

Committee Co-chairs

  • Dr. Joel Agate, Assistant Professor, Department of Health Education and Recreation, Southern Illinois University Carbondale - joela@siu.edu
