104 – Beyond Recovery...A Time for Transformation
Jamie Sabbach, President & CEO, 110% & Amilia Consulting USA
The cloak under which we all once existed and called “normal” has been ripped away, likely gone forever. Looking back, “normal” may have worked for some but it wasn’t all that great for others. Excessive entitlement, greed, political self-interest, unsustainable growth, inequities with growing division between the haves and have nots, poor public health indicators and more have led us to a place where we might wonder whether “normal” was best. As we begin to assess the pandemic’s path of destruction, it has revealed many weaknesses and fractures in our society and systems. If we are to begin to heal and recondition, it will take a complete and unmitigated commitment to strengthening our communities’ social fabric, creating rules and policy that favor the common good, and doing some tough but necessary work which will require courage, resolve, determination and strength of character.
Learning Outcomes: Participants will be able to:
- Review and analyze pre pandemic and current realities.
- Describe and identify the deficiencies in our current park and recreation operation model(s) and the opportunities which exist moving forward.
