Thank you for your interest in the Leadership Institute.


The Institute’s goal is to develop future leaders in Recreation and Parks to advance to leadership positions within their organization and in the Maryland Recreation and Parks Association. The Institute will meet monthly and attendance is required. The locations will allow participants to travel around the state to experience firsthand different facilities and geographic challenges in Maryland. Dynamic, informed guest speakers will be featured each month with facilitated discussion related to topics relevant to leadership. Projects and reading materials will be assigned between Institute dates.

Participation is limited to 20 professionals who are identified as “up-and-coming leaders” by their supervisor, department or division head. Two letters of recommendation and a resume are required with a completed application. One of the letters will need to be from the immediate supervisor who is making the recommendation to attend. Participants must be MRPA members in good standing. CEU’s will be awarded.
