Please make sure you have the dates for our 2018 conference on your calendar. We will meet at the Oxford Conference Center. Our theme this year is - Next Level: People, Purpose, Passion!! The idea is that we want to provide opportunities to take our park and recreation professionals to the next level with educational offerings, our purpose to the next level with how we engage our communities, and our passion to the next level by maintaining the personal connections with our program patrons and networking support systems. Encouraging our members to not get and stay complacent with doing things the way they’ve always done them, and that innovation, although scary at times, is necessary for growth… necessary for the Next Level of parks and recreation.
