Directors Summit

The 2024 Directors Summit is March 4th - 5th with social activities beginning on March 2nd. The host location is NOVA Parks in Fairfax, VA.

The primary goal of the Directors Summit is networking. Directors, Deputy, and Assistant Directors will engage in small and large group discussions about current parks and recreation issues. Following Directors School 2022, many expressed an interest in connecting throughout the year. After more discussion, an idea was suggested that graduates host a mid-year gathering, now called the Directors Summit.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, the Summit is available for the low cost of $100 per attendee. Most meals will be included. Travel not provided during the program are the attendees responsibility.
