Congratulations to PROS Employees

Commission for Accreditation of Park & Recreation Agencies
Your hard work was recognized. The Commission for Accreditation of Park & Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) awarded reaccreditation status to PROS in October 2010. Well it’s almost time to do it again. CAPRA will be back in the summer of 2015. Let’s show them our PRIDE!


Sterling Leadership Program

Employees who are selected to participate in PRIDE SLP will do so over a fifteen-month period and will be paired up with someone from Management, who will act as their mentor. They will provide participants with coaching and advice to assist them in developing their administrative, management and leadership skills while providing them with a better understanding of Department-wide goals. PRIDE SLP participants will be expected to dedicate up to 16 hours per month to work side by side with their mentors. Employees who are selected to participate in PRIDE will contribute to the department’s success in various areas. Opportunities include but are not limited to:
