Athletic Directors Forum
July 3-5, 2012*
Thanks to the effective work of your CAIS Athletic Executive and the CAIS National Athletic Task Force chaired by Rodger Wright, the CAIS Board has approved a new initiative for Athletic Directors.
For the first time ever, CAIS is introducing the concept of a Forum, whereby colleagues from similar positions come together to learn, share, and create.
Athletics Directors run the CAIS Athletic Tournaments and are strong ambassadors of CAIS to current students and parents. As Rodger Wright wrote in the September Report to the CAIS Board, “It has become evident that the National Tournaments for so many of the families in CAIS schools are the only tangible manifestation of our national association. These families are motivated and excited to be involved in something that brings students together from across Canada.” This group is an important partner in enhancing student leadership as well as CAIS’ National Athletic Tournaments.
To learn more about the program, review the agenda for the Athletic Directors Forum.
