Artificial Intelligence - Friend or Foe? 
Description (as prompted by the presenter and written entirely by AI):
Artificial Intelligence (AI) isn't just tech jargon; it's a groundbreaking force remaking industries worldwide. The field of recreation stands on the cusp of this transformation, teeming with opportunities for innovative applications and ethical advancements.

Step into the future with [Your Name], a pioneer in [Your Area of Expertise], in a presentation that's more than a tech talk. This session will pull back the curtain on:

Decoding AI: Get a clear-cut understanding of how Large Language AI functions, and why it matters for the recreation industry.
Optimization in Action: Discover methods to capitalize on AI's capabilities, boosting customer engagement, operational efficiency, and more within your organization.

Cultural Integration: Learn actionable strategies to weave AI technologies into the fabric of your organizational culture.

But it's not just about the "how"; it's also about the "should." This interactive presentation dives into the ethical dilemmas posed by AI's adoption in recreation, equipping you with the frameworks needed to make responsible decisions.
Speaker: Dr. Kenneth Cohen, Associate Professor, RPLS - SUNY Cortland

Speaker: Bill Salvatore, Deputy Commissioner of Programs/Unity  Cup Director - Philadelphia Parks and Recreation 

Generation Engagement

Speaker: Emily Connors M.S., CTRS, CDP, Community Builder - The Eden Alternative
