2022 Directors and Supervisors Roundtable (DSR)

Join us for this on-line and live, discussion session designed to assist  agency directors, park supervisors, managers and other leaders share information, discuss issues and address pressing concerns with other professionals in the field.

Parks and Recreation Directors, Managers and Supervisors need to be on top of many different areas including programming, finance, operations, supervision, human resources, advocacy, and leadership.   We all could use some help. 

The Directors and Supervisors Roundtable is specifically designed for those in leadership who want to meet  with their peers to share ideas and challenges, network, and learn together in a supportive and confidential environment.  Each DSM Roundtable will feature a short informative presentation on a common issue followed by a facilitated discussion.  Additionally, time is given each session to discuss topics, pressures, and dilemmas you may be facing in your organization.  The DSMR is geared specifically for those in a leadership position who need an open and confidential platform to discuss issues and brainstorm solutions. Last year's sessions were a hit as the participants found it very helpful to talk with others in similar positions and learn from them.
