PORG Database

The Park Operations Resource Group has developed a database for all VRPS members to use as a resource. This database highlights the skills of our membership and other professionals for park operations resources. Any member of VRPS can enter themselves or someone that has a specific skill;  that person listed does not need to be a member of VRPS but the person listing individuals needs to be a member, and should have consent of those that are listed to be called or emailed for advice in their given skill area. This database will be updated each year to ensure that all contacts and specialty areas remain current.  When looking at the spreadsheet please note the tabs at the bottom as they will direct you to the general area where skills are listed. People may be listed in multiple areas based on their skills as well as multiple people on the same subject matter, “the more the merrier”.  This is to be used for educational purposes only and VRPS does not endorse any person, product or service contained in the database. Please use the link provided to access the google spreadsheet.
