Congratulations to our Recreation and Open Space Consultant, Elise Yule, and our Xyst Young Leaders Scholarship recipient, Amy Tsao, for your interesting presentations at the recent Green Pavlova conference in Rotorua. Elise’s presentation was given in conjunction with Napier City Council and Amy’s formed part of the mentoring programme as part of the Generate Network and Xyst scholarship. Both are being accredited for Recreation Aotearoa’s ARPro certification which independently recognises the individual’s standard of professional attainment within the recreation profession. It is also an internationally recognised way of demonstrating their personal passion for this industry by committing to ongoing professional development. Well done to you both, hope you enjoyed a great conference experience.
