Management Skills Training for Park Managers

Bookmark and Share
Date & Time

March 2, 2020
9:00am - 3:30pm (Check in time: 8:30am)


Liability and leadership are key components of managing a park or field, and two of our most popular instructors can help you with both. Ned Lipman, former Director of the Office of Continuing Professional Education and management instructor, will introduce you to new ideas and strategies to gain commitment from even your most hardened crew members, while Professor Neil Dougherty, who serves as an expert witness in park injury cases nationwide, will discuss preventative steps to keep park managers out of the courtroom.
