CPA Welcomes New Board Directors

CPA Welcomes New Board Directors

I am excited to announce the addition of six new leaders to the City Parks Alliance Board of Directors. Much like our membership, our board of directors represent the public, nonprofit, academic, corporate, and philanthropic sectors that play an essential role in developing, maintaining, and programming parks and green space in our cities. This diverse leadership group of practitioners and innovators will help guide our work to deliver the important programming needed to leverage the power of parks and recreation in every community.

During these extraordinary times, we have all experienced a renewed understanding of the important role parks and recreation play in our physical and mental health. Parks and recreation will also play an essential role in the recovery of our cities once the health crisis has passed.

Please join us in welcoming the new board members to City Parks Alliance!
