OPRA Conference attendees will be experiencing informative education sessions ranging from topics such as Performance Management for Public Parks and Recreation Agencies, Volunteer Engagement, Rapid Response to Social Trends: Takeaways for Parks and so many more!

And this year we will be offering you an opportunity to have your professional head shot taken free of charge prior to the Awards Ceremony.

Keynote Speakers Peter Kageyama and Scott Daily will be featured along with nationally recognized speakers including Dr. John Crompton, Bobbie Nance, Tom O’Rourke and Dr. Tom Griffiths.  Each of them will inspire us to grow as leaders. Don’t miss it!
