Thank you to our Sponsors!




More than 500 parks and recreation professionals turned out for our 2015 Annual Conference, thank you to you all for attending!

Conference attendees live-tweeted throughout the day and we shared lots of great photos on Facebook.

A special thank you to our fantastic keynote speakers, Mike Smith and Kostas Voutsas for their insights on how to be a big kid and how to bridge the gap between generational differences.

And kudos to our fantastic speakers, sponsors and exhibitors and all of the many volunteers who made the Conference such a huge success!
