I've been attending the NRPA Congress since the mid 90's and I must admit, I am as excited about this conference as I felt at the beginning of my journey into the park and recreation profession. I began as a brand-builder launching the Benefits are Endless... Campaign with people who have become both professional and personal friends. This year, the Benefits are Endless... celebrates 20 years of helping tell the park and recreation story through its catch phrases and graphics which have evolved, transformed and elevated the public perception of parks and recreation agencies through the world. This year at Congress I will be presenting two of my most popular programs in their unabridged versions and with resources included. I hope you'll stop by and say "Hello!" and sit in on a session or two. The long versions of both sessions are posted below. Have a wonderful conference and happy schmoozing!
