A third roundtable on summer camps & programming. The million dollar question... will we, or won't we have our summer programming. And, if we offer it, will they come? If they do come, can we keep them safe? What about distancing and sanitation requirements? Share your challenges and solutions with other park professionals.

Creative Virtual Event Ideas Roundtable | Thursday, June 4 | 1:30 PM | Click here to register

A fourth roundtable on events. Each of us have been forced to change the way we deliver services to our communities. Social distancing requires a new way of thinking when it comes to events and services. Many of the classes that would normally be offered in person have now gone virtual. Join us for a brainstorming session of creative ways to continue to offer valuable services to the community you serve.
