2006 Associations Workshop
August 25-27, 2006
The Associations Committee in cooperation with the USATF officers and the national office staff each year presents an Association Workshop. The Workshop is staged to keep Association personnel up-to-date on national programs, administrative procedures, and other policies and programs, as well as to give national officers and staff a chance to interact face-to-face with Association personnel. Over the weekend educational sessions geared to improving the professionalism of Associations are conducted in a format that encourages interaction between the presenters and the audience.
The Workshop begins with a reception on Friday night, with heavy hors d'oeuvres, followed by program sessions from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Sunday.
A continental breakfast is provided on Saturday and Sunday mornings with a plated lunch on Saturday. Saturday evening is reserved for a social outing unique to the area we are visiting.
The Workshop is provided at no charge to the Associations and each Association is encouraged to have as many individuals participate as it wishes to attend the Workshop. Expenses of travel to the Workshop and hotel charges must be born by the individual or the Association; however, USATF provides a $500.00 travel allocation to each Association to help defray some of the travel costs.
