2018 Midwest Region Parks and Recreation Conference

The City of Yankton, SD, will host the Midwest Region Parks and Recreation Conference April 22, 23, and 24, 2018. Parks and Recreation professionals from the six state area (South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, North Dakota) will attend.
The Conference will be held in the world’s premier indoor archery training and competition facility, the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Center (NEYAC). The NEYAC is currently a 47,550 square foot facility which houses a 90-meter indoor archery range. The facility also has three outdoor archery field ranges along with two Olympic ranges. An additional 20,000 square foot addition is to be completed by February of 2018 as the facility will host the World Archery Indoor Championships.
The facility is an easy walk from the Yankton Best Western Kelly Inn, 605-665-2906, where attendees will stay.
Please save the date and we hope to see you in Yankton in April!
