2011 Southeast Region Fall Symposium Update

2011 Southeast Region Fall Symposium Update


(0 votes)

With another season nearly wrapped up, the southeast region shifts focus to the 2011 USAT SE Fall Symposium presented by Classic Subaru of Atlanta, which will be held at The Omni Hotel-CNN Center on November 5 in Atlanta. The Fall Symposium will consist of three primary schedules for learning; one for athletes and clubs; another the other for coaches, trainers, and race directors; and a third for key regional constituents such as women, youth, and paratriathletes.  The event will begin in the morning with an opening General Session for all participants, transition to the three 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 symposium that will be used as inputs for a southeastern council annual planning meeting scheduled prior to the end of the year. 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 that’s been missing is creating a venue that promotes educational seminars for our members, coaches, and others on many important topics affecting the multisport lifestyle. The Fall Symposium is designed to fill that gap.”

In conjunction with the Fall Symposium, the region will also host a closed session for our area collegiate athletes.  At this closed session, called the Collegiate Forum, regional collegiate athletes will have the opportunity to shape the future governance of the sport in the southeast region.

The Fall Symposium is open to current USAT members and non-members.  Retailers and service providers specific to the sport should consider opportunities for sponsorship, limited booth displays, and/or educational presentations in conjunction with this year’s symposium.

Whether you are looking for more information on USAT certification programs for coaches or trainers, how your tri club can compete in the 2012 regional race series, or simply how to best plan your individual training, then come join us at the Fall Symposium and learn more about the many benefits of the multisport lifestyle.
