9780736068451: Outdoor Site & Facility Management:Tools for Creating Memorabl Pl: Tools for Creating Memorable Places

Your site and facilities, whether a beautiful building, a welcoming camp setting, or a natural wilderness area, are a large part of what draws participants to your property. They are also your largest financial investment, so proper management of them is crucial. Outdoor Site and Facility Management: Tools for Creating Memorable Places is a comprehensive resource for staff, board members, management, and owners charged with the complex and challenging task of managing and maintaining properties. The book offers a step-by-step property management plan that will help you to provide the safe environment and positive atmosphere so important to creating memorable experiences for your participants.

Rather than focus on the technical skills of facility maintenance or site development, this book offers a broad perspective of property management. It introduces an integrated systems approach to the management of a variety of organizations, such as overnight and day camps, conference centers, outdoor learning centers, government parks, dude and guest ranches, commercial camp grounds, schools, not-for-profit organizations, and religious organizations. You'll have creative strategies to manage day-to-day operations, such as these:

-Planning and forecasting

-Board and administrator responsibilities

-Working with volunteers

-Natural resource management

-Hiring staff

-Budgeting and financial oversight

-Time management

-Record keeping

-Risk management
You'll also find practical advice to help you make sound decisions and form solutions that are tailored to your unique property.

The book spends a chapter on each of the key components of property management and includes 48 practical tools, such as forms and checklists; practical techniques and examples; sample job descriptions; a glossary; and a list of the indicators of successful management discussed in the chapter.

The bound-in CD-ROM contains the following features:

-65 editable forms and checklists, including maintenance schedules, staffing needs charts, inspection forms, financial plans, feedback forms, and strategic planning

-A list of editable job descriptions that you can use for defining job responsibilities and establishing the hiring process

-A comprehensive list of resources, including Web sites, articles, and books, so you can easily find specialized information and local resources

With Outdoor Site and Facility Management: Tools for Creating Memorable Places, you'll gain a complete picture of your property's physical, ecological, financial, and personnel assets. Most important, you'll discover the best way to manage your property and ultimately increase the equity of your assets and the marketability and long-term viability of your operation.

Book Description Human Kinetics Publishers, United States, 2008. Mixed media product. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a textbook or supplemental reading for outdoor recreation centres and non-profit management courses and a supplement to recreation and leisure facilities management undergraduate and graduate courses. The book focuses on the management of properties, not necessarily the technical knowledge, but how to manage and maintain a site. With ageing facilities built years ago, deferred maintenance, tight finances and employees who know activity programming - and usually not property management, it is becoming increasingly difficult to maintain a site. In short, if site and facility management is not an integral part of the mission and strategic planning an operation will cease to exist in the future.This book is written for the unique needs for camps, conference centres, retreat centres and outdoor education properties. The book covers topics, which are not usually included in other site/facilities books: sense of place, mission statements, board responsibilities, executive responsibilities, being part of the community and the non-profit sector. An extensive glossary of terms helps the reader gain a strong foundation of site and facility management, while over 400 resources provide a wide-ranging knowledge base in the field of camp and conference site and facility management.
