We are excited to announce a new two-part Fall Webinar Series scheduled to take place this November. These online training webinars will be hosted by Bobbi Nance and will focus on customer service best practices.

After the cancelation of the in-person Fall Training event, the WRPA Professional Development Committee (PDC) jumped into action to create an online alternative training for park and recreation professionals! We hope you can join us!
