To Be Held at the Holiday Inn Across from Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida, on November 15, 2014
USA Triathlon’s Florida Region is proud to announce that the Region’s First Annual Florida Region Race Director Symposium will be held on Saturday, November 15, 2014, in Orlando, Florida. This exciting one-day event will offer race directors four CEUs toward their certification plus lots of new information. It will also be a great opportunity for race directors to network with others from the region while discussing topics that apply to Florida events. Tom Reilly, the Region’s vice chair said, “We’ve been working on this Symposium for quite some time. One of our goals
is to address the issues that are of prime
importance to Florida’s race directors.”
The schedule includes:
The Importance of Volunteers and Sponsors: Attracting Volunteers and Sponsors.
Paratriathletes: Making Your Events Accessible and Hospitable to Paratriathletes. Officials: The Importance of the USA Triathlon Certified Officials’ Program.
Youth in Multisport: A Grass Roots Approach.
Women’s Initiatives: Attracting Women to Your Events.
USA Triathlon: Race Director Certification, Risk Management, Best Practices. Race Director Roundtable: An Open Forum.
The host hotel will be the Holiday Inn Across from Universal Studios, 5905 South Kirkman Road, Orlando, Florida 32819, phone 407-351-3333.
The Race Director Symposium is, of course, also open to non-certified race directors, race directors from other regions, coaches and anyone else that would like to attend.
By the way, the Symposium would be a great opportunity to mix a little business with pleasure. Bring your family along for a short “staycation” in the heart of the Sunshine State. While you’re participating in a stimulating and educational day of race director business, they can spend the day enjoying the Orlando area’s many exciting attractions—a win for everyone!
