Commission on Leisure Management

The Leisure Management Commission (LMC) was formed in 1986 and was active for many years. The Commission was re-activated in the fall of 2012, and continues with goals as outlined at the World Leisure Organization International Congress meetings. The primary goal for this Commission is to provide an international forum for exchange of information related to the management of leisure organizations, including parks, recreation, sports, fitness, trails, tourism, conservation, culture, facilities, and related programs.

The Leisure Management Commission shall seek to:
• Collect, exchange, and disseminate the latest information on the purpose, methods, costs, and effectiveness of management policies, techniques and approaches in leisure by newsletters, conferences, and publications.
• Maintain a worldwide network of leisure managers in public, private, and voluntary organizations working in leisure

Organize conferences, workshops, and seminars, especially to help managers and organizations in countries where leisure services are newly evolving.

Creation of a “best practices” summary – “Lessons from the Field”.
