2021 Directors and Supervisors Roundtable (DSR)

Join us for this on-line, quarterly, discussion session designed to assist  park supervisors, managers and leaders share information, and consult with other professionals in addressing pressing concerns and developing their leadership skills.

Parks and Recreation Managers need many different skills, including programming, finance, operations, supervision, human resources, and leadership.  That’s a lot to be on top of.  Professional development helps but what about the everyday issues you face? How do you handle uncooperative employees, a stingy council, program snafus, or a critical community issue?  Wouldn’t it be good to talk with others in similar positions and learn from them?

The Directors and Supervisors Roundtable is specifically designed for those in leadership who want to meet informally with other leaders to share ideas and challenges, network, and learn together in a supportive and confidential environment.  Each quarterly Roundtable will feature a short informative presentation on a common issue followed by a facilitated discussion with your peers on topics, pressures, and dilemmas you may be facing in your organization.  The DSR is geared specifically for those in a leadership position who need an open and confidential platform to discuss issues and brainstorm solutions.
