Park Foundation School ~

August 20 – 24, 2023 *CANCELLED

It is with deep regret that we must inform you of the cancellation of the 2023 Park Foundation School. The decision to cancel the program was not taken lightly, and we understand the disappointment and inconvenience this may cause you. We want to provide you with some context regarding the challenges we faced that led to this difficult decision.

The past couple of years have brought unprecedented challenges, particularly in the post-COVID era. As we navigate through these uncertain times, we are confronted with various obstacles that have directly impacted on our ability to proceed with the Park Foundation School. Factors such as tight municipal budgets and the continuing uncertainties related to travel have significantly hampered our capacity to secure enough participants required for the successful execution of the program.

However, we at the National Association of Park Foundations want to assure you that we remain committed to our mission of providing valuable educational content and fostering networking opportunities. Despite the cancellation of the 2023 Park Foundation School, we are actively exploring alternative ways to deliver the essence of the program and its associated benefits in some form, at a suitable time soon. The National Association of Park Foundations is dedicated to finding innovative approaches that will allow us to provide you with the educational content and networking opportunities you were eagerly anticipating.

Please stay connected with us and remain updated on our future announcements and developments regarding the foundation school. We value your continued support and engagement, which are vital to the success of our programs. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are always open to feedback and input from our registrants.

Once again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation of the 2023 Park Foundation School. We extend our gratitude for your understanding, and we remain committed to delivering valuable educational experiences and networking opportunities to our community in the future.

Thank you for your unwavering support.
