Soaring to New Heights at IAPD/IPRA 2018

Celebrating another year of commitment and growth, PerfectMind joined more than 4,400 delegates at the highly anticipated 2018 IAPD/IPRA (Illinois Association of Park Districts/Illinois Park and Recreation Association) Conference in January.


Hosted in downtown Chicago, the state’s largest parks and recreation event dove into an enriching program of workshops, education sessions, networking, and professional development across 3 days. Delegates were not only treated to an energetic 80s-themed welcome social with a live band this year, but also an intriguing evening at the Museum of Science and Industry to conclude the conference.




Travelling with our Enterprise Team for the first time, Matt Petrasanta had fun bringing his wealth of knowledge to the tradeshow, gaining insight through great conversations, and exploring thoughtful questions with parks and rec professionals.

The PerfectMind team was pleased to act on our commitment to supporting the communities we serve in more ways than one and connect with Alvaro Toribio, Director of Education & STEM Programs at the Union League Boys and Girls Clubs. We could not think of a better home for the new 1080p Samsung Smart TV that we purchased for the tradeshow, and we hope that it will be enjoyed by many during the Union League’s after-school programming for at-risk youth.
