The ASA Council Conference 2009
The ASA held its first Council Conference on 10th October 2009. Entitled ‘Facing the Future Together’ to look at the current challenges it faces and to show its members and volunteers how together everyone can drive the organisation’s future development.
The free of charge event was designed for everyone involved in the ASA to be inspired, motivated and informed about the work of their association.
Sir Clive Woodward, England’s World Cup-winning former Rugby Union coach, who has now turned his attention to producing elite athletes for the Olympic Games in London 2012, gave the afternoon address.
The day also featured guest speakers from the ASA, workshops and a ‘market place’ to enable interaction between staff and delegates, with a chance for delegates to ask questions at various stalls on topics such as membership and insurance, employment issues within clubs and online entry to events.
