2023 PRO Educational Forum

PRO is pleased to announce that the 2023 PRO Educational Forum will take place from March 28-29, 2023, at the Hamilton Convention Centre in Hamilton, Ontario. After three long years of virtual events, we are thrilled to invite our members and stakeholders back to an in-person event to mobilize knowledge, build capacity, and connect parks and recreation professionals from across the province.

PRO has developed a robust agenda complete with breakout sessions, panel discussions, networking opportunities, and a two-day trade show. Delegates will have the opportunity to choose from four concurrent sessions each hour that touch on the key themes of people, engagement, technology, and spaces. Our speakers are subject area experts, thought leaders, and experienced practitioners that bring a high degree of knowledge and understanding of the sector. The keynote address will be delivered by Waneek Horn-Miller, an Indigenous Olympian and activist. Waneek has had a lifelong involvement in championing sport in the Indigenous community and supporting truth and reconciliation across the country.
