2018 September Conference Program Committee 410

The 2018 Program Committee for the 2018 NRPA Annual Conference provides an invaluable level of support for NRPA staff as they work together to recruit and select the best, most relevant education sessions to serve their peers and support NRPA’s Three Pillars. Proudly representing agencies from across the country and working in a variety of capacities within parks and recreation, this team spent the better part of the year determining what topics would be of most value to their colleagues, seeking out top speakers in the field, and vetting hundreds of session applications. Pictured, below, are the members of this year’s Program Committee. We sincerely thank them for their hard work, wisdom and sacrifice.
