Virginia Recreation & Park Society 's Annual Conference provides access to a field of leaders and financial decision makers throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.  
2016 VRPS Annual Conference
We are almost one month out from the 2016 VRPS Conference in Roanoke!  For those who have registered for the Conference, please take a look at the Pre-Conference Activities coming up on November 5th.  

These activities include educations sessions on leadership and new park technology, along with off-site tours to the National D-Day Memorial and a Behind the Scenes tour. Saturday's social will include a "Great Gatsby" party at the Virginia Museum of Transportation.

Registration for the two off-site tours and educations sessions is open, and you can sign-up here under programs/sessions. 

If you have not registered for the Conference, do not pass up this great opportunity to network and learn from Parks and Recreation professionals from across the country.

We look forward to seeing you at VRPS 2016 Outside Up!
