2012 Sport Summit Nov 16-17 Fredericton On behalf of the planning committee it is our pleasure to invite you to attend this year’s Sport Summit in Fredericton. This year's conference will draw attendance from leading sport administrators and coaches from all over the province. Speakers representing a variety of sports at the club and provincial level will present and discuss the latest topics in sport including Canadian Sport for Life, Long Term Athlete Development, proper management of an organization and much more. The 2012 conference program is a brand new program design. Our goal was to find as many local presenters as possible, as well as encourage a great deal of participation within each session allowing delegates to utilize the information first hand. This conference delivers the most up-to-date and advanced information for sport professionals for two days, and also provides opportunity for executive directors, coaches, leaders, managers, academics, and government officials to exchange ideas on sport trends and best practices. We have a great line-up of speakers including: Kyle Johnson – Club Excellence Barry Morrison– Head Coach, FDSA Bev Adams – President, Softball NB Steve Harris – Consultant, GNB/Speed skating NB This two day conference is an excellent opportunity for you to meet with Sport NB & Coach NB members from all over the province and create an opportunity for networking, collaboration, sharing of information and the building of relationships provincially. As always, we extend a warm welcome to all our delegates who share our interest in improving sport in the province. Nestled alongside the St. John River in Fredericton, New Brunswick is Atlantic Canada's Riverfront Capital, a city that has a friendly and warm small town feel but offers visitors with the choices and diverse tastes of a cosmopolitan city. We are looking forward to meeting you in Fredericton in November at what promises to be a most stimulating and enjoyable event! Lindsey Budovitch
