2023 ARPA Annual Conference & Energize Workshop

2023 ARPA Annual Conference & Energize Workshop

October 26-28, 2023
Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

This year’s theme is “Inspiring Creativity and Community”. Recreation and parks are the heartbeat of our communities. Our spaces have the power to inspire creativity and bring all people together in meaningful ways. However, recreation and parks are more than just programs, places and activities; they are also about art, culture, and community development. That’s why we are excited to invite you to this year’s conference, which will have a special focus on these vital aspects of our collective work. This conference is a platform for recreation, FCSS, culture, and park professionals, elected officials, and others within our sector who have an interest in recreation, parks, art, culture, and community development to come together and share their experiences, knowledge, and ideas.

With the theme “Inspiring Creativity and Community” this conference is an excellent opportunity for everyone interested in making a positive impact on their community. It is a call to action for us to think big, push boundaries, create unique partnerships and collaborate with our community members.

The education program will cover the diversity of the recreation and parks sector and will include content that connects to a broad range of focus areas. Whether you’re interested in trends in recreation programming, parks and open spaces, environmental stewardship, or cultural and artistic programs, there will be something for everyone.

Together, let’s inspire creativity in our communities and build stronger, more vibrant places to live, work, and play.
