Louise McCurry gives a presentation to the audience at the 2019 Park Advisory Council Conference

This year, the annual Chicago Park District Park Advisory Council (PAC) Conference was held on March 30 at Malcolm X College. More than 300 attendees from across Chicago attended the event. Throughout the day, Chicago Park District staff and PAC leaders presented many resources and interacted with current and future park volunteers. With the help of a parks volunteer, our research team recorded a selection of the presentations including:

Creating Safe Places in Play Spaces
How to Get a Sponsor
PAC 101
How to Run an Effective Meeting
Money 101
The Special Event Checklist
Working with your Elected Officials
