Second Annual Partnerships for Parks Conference
Nov 16, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm| $10
On November 16, 2013 Partnerships for Parks will host its second annual citywide conference held by and for community groups and park supporters. The event will bring together hundreds of attendees who will learn about how NYC’s community park groups improve quality of life and strengthen our neighborhoods. Current park group leaders will get a chance to network, meet experts, and learn tips they can use immediately to support their efforts, while newcomers will learn about what resources Partnerships for Parks has to offer to help them get involved with their community parks. Workshops will be offered throughout the day. Topics will range from marketing and social media, to legal basics of forming park groups, and include experts from a variety of fields.
Attendees will end the day with a reception and awards ceremony, where select groups from throughout the five boroughs will be honored for their contributions to New York City’s green spaces. The Golden Trowel award will recognize groups’ commitment to enacting change in neighborhood parks through superb community activism. This year’s Golden Trowel recipients from Brooklyn include the Red Hook Boaters, led by Kateri Jochum, and the Coney Island Generation Gap, led by Pamela Harris.
