305 - Dear Millennial, Overcoming Generation Stereotypes in the Workplace
A new generation has arrived in the workplace (Generation Z), another generation seems to be getting a bad rap (Millennial), and a new micro-generation has been discovered (Xennial). This session is aimed at those born after 1980 and Baby Boomers/ Gen X’s that find themselves with employees they just don’t understand. Whether you are fighting against the stereotypes of your own generation or trying to stop using the “millennial” label in the workplace this session is a good step to increase collaboration. Understand yourself and other generations as we discuss how to overcome the struggles of labeling. Come with an open mind, there are some hard lessons to learn and new ways to think about your team.

Recent tort liability cases that provide guideposts in your agency's day-to-day operations will also be covered. Attendees will also receive information about the latest developments from the state capitol and insight on what to expect during the upcoming legislative session. Stay current on a wide variety of changes in the law and learn how those changes will affect the operation of your agency.
413 - Creating and Ensuring a Relevant Parks and Recreation Agency
The challenges of today are multi-faceted and can range from social ills to business models. Do we attempt to solve them all or identify what problems our agency’s effectively address? What is most important is to understand how to be relevant, thus making sports and recreation agencies a critical success factor to the success of a community. Along the way identification and development of critical advocates to ensure your success is needed. This session will address how to evaluate where you are, the identification of critical advocates and implement a plan for relevance.
414 - Great Expectations Can Revenue Goals and Social Equity Co-Exist
The roots of the recreation profession lie in the playground movement of the 1880’s. We were a social service created to keep children safe, but today we are asked to be a service that recovers its cost: can both of these co-exist??? In this session we will review how to identify and address community need, address cost recovery goals and meet the mandate for equity in services. These two mandates can co-exist if a relevant service is provided based on planning, market segmentation, competition analysis and financial performance monitoring.
