Cast Your Vote in the OPRA Board of Directors Election

As part of the OPRA Strategic Plan, one of the major objectives is to strengthen the organization’s future through the succession of our professional leadership. To achieve this, the Organizational Development Committee has generated a strong slate of candidates for the upcoming three vacant board of directors seats. The committee and the OPRA board has confirmed each candidate’s eligibility and qualifications to move the Association toward its mission—to educate, advocate and collaborate for the profession of parks and recreation. Now we need YOU!

This year, there are four candidates seeking your vote for three open board seats.  To view the résumé of each candidate click here and log into your account.

When you are ready to cast your vote, simply follow the link sent to you via email to take you to the secured voting page, select up to three candidates and click done—it’s that easy! (It is important to note that once you submit your vote, you will not be able to access the voting page a second time.  Please check your spam folder as the voting email is coming from a different server/IP address than normal.)  If you are not able to vote electronically due to technological limitations, you may submit a paper ballot.

As per the OPRA Bylaws, all votes must be received by 5:00pm May 27, 2014. Results of the election will be formally announced after the Board approves the results at the June 2014 meeting.

If you have any questions regarding the election process, or have difficulty accessing the online voting method, please contact Mindy at mindy@opraonline.org, or by calling the OPRA office at (614) 895-2222 or (800) 238-1108 or Organizational Development Committee Chair Matt Earman at mearman@dublin.oh.us or (614) 410-4550.

2015 OPRA Conference Education Session Proposal
Deadline:  July 25th

Have you ever attended an educational session at a Conference that inspired you, gave you insight on how to improve your department, or program offerings?  Have you ever come out of a session and thought “that was a waste of time?”


Well here is your chance to make a difference!  We are now accepting Education Proposals for the 2015 OPRA Conference taking place on February 1-4, 2015 in Sandusky, Ohio.


In addition to the experts in our field, we are also looking for successful people outside the Parks and Recreation industry, someone who can come in and give a different perspective on how to become more successful.  Please contact us if someone comes to mind or share the proposal form with a potential presenter.

Through the Conference survey taken after the 2014 Conference, we’ve compiled a list of topics that are of interest to our attendees.  Click here to view the suggested topics.
