Oregon ELGL is proud to announce a new event on all the different aspects that are involved with running a Parks and Recreation department or district. Ken Warner the Assistant Director of West Linn’s parks department and Justin Cutler the general manager of the Sunset Empire parks district will be speaking. So mark your calendars for May 13th!
There are a variety of issues a Parks and Recreation department deals with everyday, and it’s not just complaining citizens. Usually thought of as the “feel good” department, Parks and Rec actually deal with everything from land acquisition and preservation to community planning and volunteer management. They are also integral to community relations and building partnerships with local businesses and organizations. All of these issues could be difficult to navigate so we’ve enlisted to experienced professionals to explain to us how they manage it.
Date: May 13, 2014
