Agency Work Life
TRPA team members are passionate about Tahoe, and engage in its outdoor pursuits and contribute through community service in myriad ways. We are active in local sports and fitness activities and classes, with an on-site CrossFit style gym and coordinated fitness classes ranging from Pilates to martial arts. Many are committed to personal best in their sport of choice—climbing a highest peak, running the next marathon, or sending a team to the “Tough Mudder” extreme sports competition.
TRPA employees take their workplace culture into the Tahoe Basin community. Many staff members are involved extensively in local affairs, donating their time and talent to countless organizations. Throughout the Lake Tahoe Region, TRPA employees’ passion for the place together with a can-do, problem-solving attitude regularly contribute to added environmental and social service outcomes beyond the bounds of the job alone. In all we do, collaboration, partnership building, service, and personal commitment are highly valued in the employee culture to secure a better future for the Lake and its environs.
