2011 Fall Symposium
August 24, 2011 by Richard Anton
With another season nearly wrapped up, the southeast region shifts focus to the 2011 USAT SE Fall Symposium, which will be held at The Omni Hotel-CNN Center on November 5th in Atlanta. The Symposium will consist of two primary schedules for learning; one for athletes and clubs, the other for coaches, trainers, and race directors. The event will begin in the morning with an opening General Session for all participants, transition to the two curriculum tracks, then wrap up with a closing General Session for all attendees at the end of the day.
By design, the November date will also allow regional USAT members a feedback mechanism at the Saturday symposium that will be used as inputs for a southeastern council annual planning meeting the next day. Symposium participants will have the opportunity to meet current and newly elected council members as well as hear about opportunities to fill any openings on the council in 2012. "While events like the annual regional expo have provided the framework for a festive, kick off to the season," said regional council vice-chairman, Richard Anton, "a piece thats been missing is creating a venue that promotes educational seminars for our members, coaches, and other on many important topics affecting the multisport lifestyle. The Fall Symposium is designed to fill that gap.
