For 47 years Indiana University’s Executive Development Program (EDP) has been training park and recreation professionals at all levels. The 2015 Executive Development Program took place from April 19-22 at Indiana University. The 2015 program was ‘sold out’ and was held at the historic Indiana Memorial Union Biddle Hotel and Conference Center which is located at the heart of the Indiana University Campus. This year’s program included more than 95 park and recreation professionals from 17 states including Indiana, Minnesota, Illinois, Louisiana, Texas, Ohio, Delaware, Missouri, Tennessee, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, California, Wisconsin, North Carolina, New York and Kansas.
This two-year interactive continuing education program focused on current issues facing park and recreation professionals such as succession planning, programming analysis, employee selection and interviewing, bench- marking financial performance, leadership, ethics, risk management, social media, and customer service and more.
