Coronavirus Disease

mParks wants to express our gratitude and support to all our members during this unprecedented time. We are seeing members step up and serve their communities in ways that far surpass their job descriptions. The theme of the 2020 Conference & Trade Show - In This Together - has never been more accurate.

While mostly remote, the mParks staff is working diligently to meet the needs of our members. Feel free to email any of us at anytime or email if you're not sure who to contact. The office phone is being checked regularly, so please leave a message and the correct staff person will call you back in a timely manner.
