Dear IPRA Members,
It is great to be back home again in Indiana. I recently retired after 35 years in the field of parks and recreation. My professional journey took me from Brown County 4-H to parks and recreation departments in Bloomington, Indianapolis and Lafayette and finally to the Urbana IL Park District. Wayne and I returned to Indianapolis to be close to family.
I am thrilled to be able to provide this interim service to an organization that means so much to me as a professional. I was active in IPRA serving on the Board of Directors and Legislative Committee for many years and I was President of the Association in 1996.
My focus over the next few months will be to continue planning for an excellent state conference at the Blue Chip in Michigan City in January and to ensure that the IPRA office operations continue to operate smoothly in the Association's provision of services to IPRA's members, Board and partners.
I look forward to reconnecting with old friends and meeting many new parks and recreation professionals around the state. It really is great to be back home again!
