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 with and from their peers. Each DS Roundtable will feature an informative presentation on a common issue followed by a facilitated discussion with the presenter and among the participants. Additionally, time is given each session for you to discuss topics, pressures, and dilemmas that you or your peers may be facing. The DS Roundtable is geared specifically for those in a leadership position to learn from others and who need an open platform to discuss issues and brainstorm solutions. This is an ideal opportunity for leaders to expand their network and make connections with other professionals in the field.
