The concept is very simple:

50 testimonials from professionals over the age of 50 that share experiences in our field, their lessons learned, their wishes for the future. These testimonials will be posted on social media, on our website, newsletter, and also printed in our parks and recreation magazine throughout the year.

You are an inspiration.  Thank you for taking the time to help the future of parks and recreation!  Thank you for taking the time to enhance the CPRS membership experience!

We appreciate you!

Your 2019-20 CPRS Board of Directors
