The City of Lubbock will host a statewide expo for parks and recreation professionals later this year.

The Texas Recreation and Park Society, a professional and educational 501(c)3 non-profit organization, will hold the organization’s annual statewide institute and EXPO in Lubbock.

The 75-year-old organization will hold the annual event on March 4th through the 8th at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.

“Our agenda includes more than 70 educational sessions that touch on many key topics shaping our profession,” said Randy Truesdell, Parks and Recreation director for the City of Lubbock. “We will hear from experts on sustainability, programming, team-building, planning, customer service, and emerging technologies, just to name a few.”

The institute and EXPO provides an opportunity for vendors to interact with members of all levels, and will focus on topics related to parks, recreation, therapeutic recreation, and leisure services. Hundreds of attendees from across the state are expected to visit Lubbock for the event.
