Meet the Staff: Conferences and Education


The Conferences and Education staff not only planned this year's NRPA Congress in San Antonio, but are responsible for all schools and conferences during the year. Needless to say, this group is quite busy. They took a few moments out of their day to tell us a little more about themselves.

Vicki Hawarden, Director

She may be a new director to NRPA (she has been here six months), but Hawarden is no stranger to event planning. At her previous position at the American Association of Blood Banks, she was responsible for planning a large convention and other education programs. She enjoys her new position in parks and recreation, because she believes in protecting natural spaces. Coming from the University of Oklahoma, Hawarden and her husband enjoy watching college football (he's from University of Texas) and rooting on their respective alma maters.

Diane Bombard, Meeting Planner

Bombard has worked for NRPA for two years, planning multiple conferences and schools as well as serving as liaison to the New England, Mid Atlantic and Pacific regions. Prior to coming to the association, she spent 15 years planning more than 100 meetings annually for the National Automobile Dealers Association. In her spare time she enjoys bowling, and even placed first in the Washington, D.C., Area Women's Bowling Tournament in 2001.

Carmela Brittingham, Meeting Coordinator

Brittingham is a perfect fit for NRPA--she loves many kinds of outdoor recreation including camping, canoeing, backpacking and anything where she can enjoy nature's beauty. She graduated from George Mason University with a Health, Fitness and Recreation degree. She assists with a multitude of projects for the department including evaluation reports and database management.

Matt Danzig, Exhibits Coordinator

After starting at NRPA as a meeting coordinator, Danzig is responsible for exhibit and sponsorship sales of the National Aquatic Conference and regional events. He has a degree from George Mason University. He enjoys playing sports, as well as being at the beach.

Cynthia Davis, Exposition Manager

Davis' responsibilities at NRPA include selling exhibit space and sponsorships for the annual Congress and Exposition, as well as overseeing exhibits at all regional events. She has more than 25 years experience in the association field. She also enjoys cooking in her newly renovated kitchen, and can often be found entertaining friends with her culinary delights. …
