About the event

Don't miss out on this opportunity to participate in the 2024 Financial Sustainability Certification Program and increase your financial literacy, network with other CPRA professionals, and earn 1.5 CEUs. This is a Colorado Parks & Recreation Association supported program.

As park and recreation professionals, we are privileged to be the stewards of taxpayer dollars. Each and every day we get to spend their money.  What a responsibility!  We hold in our hands the power to impact communities by how we manage these resources, how we spend, how we generate revenues, and how we work to create a financially sustainable future for our organizations and for the field of parks and recreation.

The Financial Sustainability Certification Program is taught by Jamie Sabbach, Founder and President of 110%.
