Subject: [serr] 2010 SERR Conference
Dear past SERR participants and other colleagues,
We invite your participation in the 32nd Annual Southeastern Recreation Research (SERR) Conference scheduled for February 21st – 23rd, 2010 in Greenville, South Carolina. Graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, agency planners, land managers, and researchers are all encouraged to attend the conference and submit a proposal for an oral or poster presentation.
This year's conference will feature Fran P. Mainella as the keynote speaker. She served as the 16th Director of the National Park Service and was the first woman to hold that position. Also, this year's conference will include brief, provocative position statements made by senior members within our professions in an effort to challenge the current thinking and practices within the field of recreation and park management. Finally, the conference will include concurrent sessions, which will allow greater opportunities for oral presentations and follow-up discussions.
The SERR Conference provides an exceptional opportunity for researchers and managers within the parks, recreation and amenity management system fields to learn about and discuss each other’s projects, research findings, and regional needs. The conference focus is on outdoor-based leisure, recreation and tourism research, however other topics are welcome if they have a direct link to this focus. The call for papers, additional conference information, and on-line registration can be found at www.serrconference.org. The deadline for submission of paper proposals is November 2nd.
Please forward this announcement to other colleagues who might be interested in attending the SERR Conference. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in Greenville!
Jeffrey Hallo, Robert Bixler, and Gary Green
