Virtual Roundtables

FREE Virtual Roundtables!

PRPS continues to host Virtual Roundtables to provide a networking platform for members to share the challenges and issues they are facing during the COVID-19 crisis. Join us to brainstorm ideas and share creative ways to cope with closures, new work restrictions, future unknowns, and how to move forward during this stressful time. Take this opportunity to share and learn with peers from across Pennsylvania. We are stronger together! 

Upcoming Roundtables


Join us for open discussion among your peers about topics and issues and share your stories and ask your questions! The first 45 minutes will be a dialogue with the full group, and we will end with the opportunity to break into smaller specialized groups (districts, rural, urban, etc.). We encourage you to send hot topics ahead of time to help initiate discussions - topics can be sent to [email protected].

2022 PRPS Directors and Supervisors Roundtable (DSR)


Join us for this on-line and live, discussion session designed to assist  agency directors, park supervisors, managers and other leaders share information, discuss issues and address pressing concerns with other professionals in the field.

Parks and Recreation Directors, Managers and Supervisors need to be on top of many different areas including programming, finance, operations, supervision, human resources, advocacy, and leadership. We all could use some help. The Directors and Supervisors Roundtable is specifically designed for those in leadership who want to meet  with their peers to share ideas and challenges, network, and learn together in a supportive and confidential environment.  Each DSM Roundtable will feature a short informative presentation on a common issue followed by a facilitated discussion.  Additionally, time is given each session to discuss topics, pressures, and dilemmas you may be facing in your organization.  The DSMR is geared specifically for those in a leadership position who need an open and confidential platform to discuss issues and brainstorm solutions. Last year's sessions were a hit as the participants found it very helpful to talk with others in similar positions and learn from them.
