Section Meeting Season is Here - Register Today
12/13/2012 9:35:46 AM
Are you registered for your 2013 Section Meeting? Section Meetings are for all AYSO volunteers and are a great opportunity to connect with fellow volunteers from throughout your Section, further your training, get certified and learn new things in a variety of engaging workshops.
It’s truly an invaluable experience – all attendees will be armed with the tools necessary to give their Regions’ players the true “AYSO Experience.”
It’s important to note that every year, Section Meetings are centered around a theme – this year’s being RESPECT.starts.with.me.
Respect should be the foundation of youth sports – and when we treat each other with courtesy, consideration and patience, kids pay attention and follow suit. Imagine if all AYSO participants embraced RESPECT.starts.with.me – that means showing respect for coaches, referees, players, parents and all volunteers, making the AYSO experience a positive one for everyone.
With the theme in mind, the 2013 Section Meetings present a chance for you to learn how to foster a respectful environment in your own Region – while also educating and training you for your job and its specific requirements.
The Section Meetings host an impressive lineup of workshops and roundtables; there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re a treasurer, CVPA, registrar, webmaster, Regional Commissioner, coach, referee, selling Region sponsorships, or have any other Regional role, Section Meetings have workshops with education materials just for you. There are also a few brand new workshops being presented this year, including:
- AYSO Amplified: A course focused on helping Regions effectively leverage the AYSO brand
- REC is Not a Four Letter Word: A session that gives Regions tips on how to compete successfully in their communities with other organizations
- 7 Simple Secrets for an Amazing Region Website: This course will tell you all you need to know to perfect your online communications both through your Region website and social media
(Note: not all workshops are available at all meetings. See your Section Meeting agenda for a complete schedule)
Topic-specific roundtables will also be offered at Section Meetings, giving volunteers a chance to connect and discuss matters face-to-face with National volunteers and staff.
AYSO’s Section Meetings will travel Section to Section, all across the country. Thousands of AYSO’s Executive Members will take advantage of the rare opportunity for fun, education and camaraderie. Make sure you don’t miss out! Find out more about your meeting and register today.
