SEASPAR Receives Prestigious Awards

It gives us great pleasure to announce that SEASPAR has been awarded the esteemed Illinois Distinguished Accreditation and was also honored with the Exceptional Workplace Award at the recent IPRA/IAPD conference held on January 26. These recognitions highlight our unwavering dedication to improving special recreation services delivery to families across the communities we serve.

The Illinois Distinguished Accreditation program is designed to enhance Illinois residents’ quality of life by fostering excellence in recreation services. Through a voluntary and comprehensive evaluation process, the program aims to recognize agencies that provide exceptional service to their communities.

Obtaining Distinguished Accreditation was a team effort for SEASPAR, with all staff contributing to the project of evaluating processes and services and ensuring they are all in line with industry best practices. The exercise of achieving Distinguished Accreditation has made SEASPAR a more streamlined, transparent, and effective organization.

Receiving the Exceptional Workplace Award validates our efforts to create a positive and inclusive work environment where every staff member feels valued and appreciated. This award reminds us of the importance of teamwork, collaboration, and dedication to achieving our goals.

We take pride in being like a family, where every member plays a vital role in delivering the highest quality service possible to our community. Whether it’s organizing recreational activities, coordinating community events, or administrative processes, each member of our team contributes to making SEASPAR a truly exceptional place to work.

In late December 2023, SEASPAR was also awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA). This award recognized the presentation and transparency of our very first Annual Comprehensive Financial ReportClicking this link will open a PDF document., for the 2022 fiscal year. This report includes our audited financial statements along with statistical information and highlights from the year.

According to the GFOA, “The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.”

As we proudly celebrate these recognitions, we remain committed to fostering a workplace culture built on trust, respect, and camaraderie. Together, we will continue to strive for excellence in everything we do and uphold SEASPAR’s mission.
