Are you ready to bring it to The Beach??

The Annual Conference Committee is in high gear prepping for the 2015 conference, November 7 – 10 in Virginia Beach. The conference sessions kick off on Sunday, November 8 at 8:30 am with the Opening Session and Keynote Address scheduled at 10:00 am, so be sure to arrive early on Saturday and take advantage of our Pre-Conference Institutes and “Game On” social in Neptune’s Park adjacent to the hotel.

Cultivate

As our profession dramatically changes, it’s our duty to continually learn new methods of programming and operations, brainstorm new services we can offer to our citizens, and challenge our way of thinking. The educational sessions will engage you and provide you with the tools to make an immediate impact when you travel back to your community.

Connect

Being with like-minded individuals is inspirational and refreshing and the socials that are planned at Neptune’s Park will “enlighten and make your spirit glow.” This year’s conference will foster learning in a variety of formats. With the proximity to Old Dominion University and Virginia Wesleyan College, future leaders in the field will be eager to connect with seasoned professionals to share information and discuss the latest trends.

Converge

Once a year we get the opportunity to meet as a united group of Virginia Parks and Recreation Professionals and set our direction towards greatness. Learning occurs in different ways and at the conference, we are offering many innovative ways to expand your network of friends, potential clients and meet experts who will pass their knowledge to you. The exhibit hall is designed in an experiential format which is interactive and will foster new relationship between vendors and delegates. Each evening, the fun really gets going with spectacular activities on the East Coast’s most famous oceanfront.
