Why Should I Attend Convention?
The investment you make to attend Convention will bring you a payout in countless ways with your personal and professional development. This event is a world-class opportunity to invest in your career, your players, and the coaching profession. The following are a few examples of how you will benefit from the Convention.
You will learn from and spend time with some of the most accomplished presenters during the hundreds of sessions that are offered. These also include core and special topic diplomas which will be available. These programs will result in better coaching experiences for you, your players and overall on-field success.
The networking alone will make an impact on your career. You will create and build relationships with new, like-minded coaches and form friendships that will last a lifetime. You will also be able to meet up with coaching friends, colleagues, and contacts that you may only get to see once a year.
Programs will also equip you with skills around resume writing, negotiations, and career development. All the while, a career fair, job board, and Exhibitor “Now Hiring” feature will bring job seekers and employers together.
