Financial Alphabet Soup in Parks and Recreation

  • Registration Closed

We hold in our hands the power to impact communities by how we manage financial resources. How we spend, how we generate revenue, and how we work to create a financially sustainable future forms the foundation for our organizations and for the field of parks and recreation. 

Leading up to NRPA’s new Financial Sustainability Certification Program that will be hosted in 10 states during 2023, we are providing this talk covering all things finance. There's no better time than now to learn more about finance. Join this event designed specifically for park and recreation folks!  

Jamie Sabbach

President, 110%, Inc

An enthusiastic but bad dancer. Excitable when in the presence of a dog. I love the idea of being a marathoner – don’t have the legs. Vertically challenged or “fun size”, I’m the last one to know it’s raining.

Mom from Appalachia. Father an immigrant from the middle east. I’m a curious combo of the two. Native of the Chicagoland area, I bleed Cubbie Blue with a dog named Wrigley. Enough said.

With a grandfather who was a carpenter, woodworking is in my DNA. The mountains of Colorado are my home. Hiking is a way of life.

Halloween birthday. Nickname: Pumpkin.

Started 110% Inc in 2010. If you don’t know 110%, Google it. 30+ years serving the parks and recreation profession as a practitioner, educator, consultant.

Testified to the US Congress on the critical importance of public lands and recreation. Presentations given in North America and Europe to thousands. I like to call out the elephant in the room. Why not?

I’ve been privileged to spend my adult life and career serving the park and recreation profession doing something I love. Not everyone can say that.
