Leading Teams Remotely - Thursday, April 9th @ 1 pm (Mountain Time)
Leading your teams through uncertain times is always difficult and is only made tougher by the fact that many park & recreation professionals are now required to do it remotely with little preparation or training. Leading your teams through this time requires more skills than just learning how to host a Zoom meeting though.Join Bobbi Nance, President of Recreation Results, for a webinar where she will cover some of the challenges and opportunities that remote work brings and talk through strategies you can use to better lead your team through this time.

Preparing Facilities for Coronavirus - Friday, April 10th @ 12 pm (Mountain Time)
The coronavirus pandemic is uncharted territory, creating new facility management questions every day. What steps can we take to improve indoor air quality and safety? Do we need to upgrade filters before employees return to the office? Can we just lock the doors and walk away until shelter-in-place orders end?
McKinstry experts are ready to sift fact-based best practices from misinformation across engineering, commissioning, operations and maintenance, retrofits and more. Gather your questions and join us for an interactive conversation featuring:
Speakers: Michael Frank, Vice President of Engineering, Adam Gloss, Director and General Manager of Service, Sarah Moore, Mechanical Engineering Manager, Geremy Wolff, Technical Services Regional Director

Putting Facilities in Temporary Sleep Mode- Wednesday, April 15th @ 12 pm (Pacific Time)
My people are all working from home. How do I put my facility in temporary sleep mode so that it can be woken back up after all of this is over? Can’t we just lock the doors and walk away until the shelter-in-place order ends?
McKinstry experts are ready to sift fact-based best practices from misinformation across engineering, commissioning, operations and maintenance, retrofits and more. This session dives deeper into proper facility operations while occupants are sheltering in place (and how to wake facilities back up before occupants return).

Engage Everyone in Online Meetings - On Demand
We’re all working from home and/or at some distance from co-workers. That means MORE ONLINE MEETINGS! Those meetings can be very PRODUCTIVE and keep us better connected. Or, they can be INEFFICIENT and BORING!How common is this experience in online meetings you attend? Half the group gets distracted by interruptions and the other half are focused on another work task. When meetings are well facilitated, attendees pay attention, participate, and contribute. Meaningful participation provides the foundation for informed consent and concerted follow-through.
Speakers: Eve Keller and Chris Williams, Interaction Associates

Natural Harmony: An Instrumental Guide to Music & Community (on-demand)

On demand until April 17th, offered by Playcore.

Music parks benefit every member of the community, but few communities have a music program available and affordable to everyone. A permanent installation of instruments changes that. A simplified system allows anyone to play, regardless of training or ability, and instruments can be designed for individual and ensemble play. Music transcends age, gender, ethnicity and mobility, and is a gathering force that builds better communities and helps makes people kinder. 

Join property managers, distributors, architects, landscape architects, and recreation and park professionals for a complimentary professional development webinar. 

ON DEMAND: This session was pre-recorded on Tuesday, September 17, 2019. After watching the recording in its entirety, an email with information on how to obtain CEU will be sent within 24 hours. The link to access the survey/assessment to obtain CEUs will be opened until Sunday, April 19 - 11:59pm. The recording will start automatically after registering.

NOTES: Run time is 1 hour 5 minutes (including Q&A)
