There were plenty of informative Association Leadership Workshops over the weekend of the AGM that we want to share with our members.
The aim of the workshops is to inform associations of resources and best practices to apply to their own areas. Presentations are done by leaders in the hockey world and open up discussions on bettering the hockey experience for those involved in hockey communities.
