Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground manufacturer, along with its Arizona playground consultant, ExerPlay, Inc., is scheduled to exhibit at the 62nd Arizona Parks & Recreation Association (APRA) Annual Conference & Trade Show Aug. 27-30, in Scottsdale. The conference will feature Jennifer Baker, director of operations for The Meeting Institute, a company that provides training programs for recreation agencies and hospitality/tourist properties to boost their team’s service, morale, skills and productivity, as the keynote and presenting speaker. This learning experience was made possible through the 2012-2013 State Association Speaker Scholarship program from Landscape Structures.

Jennifer has managed recreation departments for many properties, and in her various professional roles has designed and implemented training programs, workshops and special events for recreation, front desk and food service interns from all over the world. She has presented at previous NRPA Congresses, health care leadership conferences and hospitality management meetings. Her sessions at APRA will focus on how choosing the right attitude gives individuals a competitive edge in the workplace, in communities served and life in general. Methods to overcome negativity and sustain a more positive attitude in the workplace will be identified, and audience members will assess where they fit as a leader when it comes to attitude.

The 90-minute session will be presented on Wednesday, Aug. 29, at 11 a.m. Following the keynote, delegates will have the opportunity to visit ExerPlay and Landscape Structures in the exhibit hall to learn about the latest trends in playground design including custom and theme designs, concrete as a playground material and creating truly inclusive play environments.
