Atlanta Club Ed seminar
Three officers of the Miami Figure Skating Club joined representatives from other United States Figure Skating clubs from the southeast United States at the USFS 2008 Club Education seminar Saturday, February 23, 2008, in Atlanta. MFSC President Karen Kammer, Treasurer Arin Finocchiaro and Secretary Maria Sidlosca met with their counterparts from other clubs to hear USFS representatives and a facilitator share insights about skating club management.
Attendees learned about all aspects of club governance – including recruiting and training volunteers, developing a strategic plan, team building, fundraising, programming, and other issues – as well as the club’s relationship to U.S. Figure Skating. USFS Director of Skating Programs Susie Wehrli joined facilitator Rose Snyder of Snyder Consulting to lead the day-long program. Other participating clubs included clubs from North Carolina, New York, Alabama, and Georgia.
We have come away from the seminar with fresh ideas, a renewed sense of enthusiasm and new friends.
