Partnerships are essential for the efficient use of a community's recreational and health resources.  This is especially important as we prepare for summer camps, fairs, programs, and more outdoor activities.  Many Municipalities are also experiencing increased demand and responsibility to provide inclusive programming and services for all of their constituents, often, with fewer resources and more red tape. This Spring's exchange will highlight several unique partnerships that have been successful in providing these needed programs for their communities.  Panel members will share their successes and challenges on developing and managing partnerships.  The afternoon round tables will provide attendees with the chance to learn more about specific topics of interest in the partnership process.  Throughout the Exchange, attendees will be encouraged to network with panelists and peers to strengthen ties and share ideas on building positive partnerships for programs and services in Urban Environments.
