The 2017 Agency Performance Survey is now open to accept your NRPA Park Metrics data.
When you add your agency’s data to NRPA Park Metrics, it becomes part of the most robust park and recreation agency performance database for our nation, allowing your agency and its peers to identify best practices and make informed strategic decisions for years to come. While benchmark data cannot, in and of itself, give you all the answers to the issues that may be vexing your agency, it does provide an information base from which you can make educated decisions. Use this data with your leadership, staff, external consultants and key stakeholders as you guide your agency into the future.
If your agency has not filled out an Agency Performance Survey in recent years, you can enter your data in 20 to 30 minutes. Agencies that have entered their data in recent years can update their 2017 NRPA Park Metrics data in just a matter of minutes. The online survey form allows you to “push” prior year’s data into the current year’s form. After transferring this data, all you need to update are a few figures for the current fiscal year and you are done.
If your agency has not been keeping its Park Metrics profile up-to-date, now is a great time to enter your data with the streamlined Agency Performance Survey. Regardless of your agency’s level of participation with NRPA Park Metrics, I encourage you to view the findings within this year’s 2017 Agency Performance Review.
