Each year, California Parks and Recreations Society (CPRS) Development and Operations hosts a Park Development and Operations Symposium. This event creates opportunities that educate, inform and inspire the professionals who develop and maintain public park, recreational, natural, cultural and historical resources in the State of California. This year, Calsense customer Manhany Park in Roseville hosted the event. As an event sponsor, Calsense was represented by Field Service Rep Scott Daugs and Sales Rep George Apostolopoulos.


Educating Public Facility Operations on Saving Water

Scott and George demonstrated to public facility operations the variety of ways to save water at recreation facilities. The dynamics of the event allowed them to share Calsense technology with both familiar and new faces. Interacting with customers face to face was especially significant for Scott, as he shared his expertise to educate and train those who will be managing California public parks and recreation facilities.

Record Engagement for Symposium Support

This year was the most successful Symposium in the history of the event. According to the Symposium Chair Ashley Howe, “the event attracted a record number of attendees and raised a record amount of funds for professional training, education and scholarship programs like the annual Fred Brooks Scholarship this year given to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Student Brett Walsh.”
