Administration Section


ORPA's Administration Section provides education, training, and networking for parks and recreation professionals who focus on agency administration and management.

Areas of focus for the Administration Section and its affiliate members include agency management, resources development, personnel management, communication and public relations, operational planning, regulations, and trends. Section participants typically include agency senior leaders and mid-level managers.
