This one-day Downstate Conference has become one of the biggest and most popular Recreational Conferences within New York State. Each year we draw over 200 delegates from Long Island, New York City and the Lower Hudson Valley. Due to the generosity of professionals willing to share of their time, talent, and wisdom we are able to offer twenty five, one hour, diverse educational and beneficial sessions to our members.

 

This year we are pleased to announce our theme, "Find Your Fun!" Initially inspired by this year’s National Parks’ 100th Anniversary (Find Your Park) we hope to this year’s theme is the springboard for a program intended to help park, recreation and therapeutic professionals get back to the basics and remember they can still keep the fun in their work from fundamentals in programming, to functioning and finding funding.
