biteable-industrial-office2020 Rowing BC Annual General Meeting and Conference

Prior to the pandemic, Rowing BC was preparing a one day, in-person, multi stream conference, designed to meet the diverse needs of our members and stakeholders. However, in pivoting to the virtual environment as a response to the pandemic, we recognize there’s a limit to how many hours you can spend engaged in front of the computer all on one day!

Instead, we have condensed our conference to include just over two hours of content on the primary day and will offer the other content in stand-alone virtual sessions over the coming months. Check out the full plan below ↓

ROWING BC VIRTUAL AGM AND CONFERENCE

The Rowing BC AGM and virtual conference series will be on Friday, November 13 and Saturday, November 14. Follow-up conference topics will be presented in the following months as part of our Monthly Conference Content Series (find out more HERE).

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2020

This online module is a requirement of all coaches under the RCA Every Coach Certified Initiative by March 31, 2021.  Include it as a value-add in your Rowing BC Conference weekend!

Registration often fills up early. Secure your spot here.
