Join the tour!



Arizona Parks & Recreation Association has partnered with Annie Frisoli of Creating Community LLC to be part of a concert series (well this may be a bit of a stretch).  In case you haven't met Annie, she is one of our TOP RATED speakers!

In reality, we are offering an outreach tour designed exclusively for the members of APRA.  Annie is offering an opportunity for you to host a one day retreat with your team at your agency titled, Building Your Team Towards Their Collective Purpose - this is a great opportunity (and price) for you and your team and especially for those employees who may not always have the option to participate in professional development opportunities like state or national conferences, etc.

I have attached a one page handout below describing the retreat, tour date options, number of participants, and cost (which is a discounted rate since we will all be working together as an association to develop this outreach tour).  Also, if there are a couple of you that want to team up to reduce the price even more, Annie is fine with more than one agency teaming up and sharing the retreat.


Learning Outcomes:

1. Participants will discuss the five core characteristics of a team.

2. Participants will complete strategies related to team trust, alignment, and commitment.

3. Participants will analyze their own professional strengths and weaknesses and how they impact their team and the ability to achieve results.





The deadline to officially sign up for the tour is February 28th,

there are only 10 concert stops on this tour - once it fills, it fills.  


NOTE:  We are offering the concert tour this spring to the Central, East & South Regions -

and will offer it again in the fall to the Central, West & North Regions.
