Foundation of the Virginia Recreation and Park Society 2014 Member List

by Nancy Turnage, VRPS Central Office

On the heels of an extraordinary year which saw us lead the effort to complete the Society’s Capital Campaign, the Foundation of VRPS followed up with an extremely successful 2014 which included multiple accomplishments.  The Foundation supported the efforts of the 2014 Leadership Training Institute through funding for speakers and scholarships, worked with Service Areas & Resource Groups to offer a combined thirty-eight scholarships to the 2014 Annual Conference, awarded a qualified professional the Jesse A. Reynolds Memorial Scholarship, and took our first steps in the creation of an Education Endowment designed to fund professional development for years to come.

Membership in the Foundation has a deeper meaning than just writing a check.  Membership supports colleagues, co-workers, future professionals and tomorrow’s leaders through providing scholarships, promoting leisure awareness, improving leisure opportunities, and strengthening the commitment to our profession. 

As the calendar turns to 2015 and the 30th anniversary of the Foundation’s creation, please remember that your membership continues to support the principles for which the Foundation was established.

We look forward to you joining us in our mission.

2014 Foundation President
