Dear U.S. Figure Skating Club Officers and Board Members,

Please join us for the upcoming Club Education Seminar on Saturday, March 11th at 8:30 – 4:30 p.m. at the Ice Sheet in Ogden. We will be discussing the day-to-day operations and business related topics of running a successful and financially viable figure skating club. Whether your club has been around for years or it has just been formed, you are the foundation of our sport and the essential link to the success of your members. This seminar is open to all current and prospective board members, skating directors, coaches and rink management staff – everyone that serves in a leadership position.

The fee is $75 per person or a maximum of $250 per board of four or more members. This seminar will be co-hosted with the Intermountain Interclub Association. Member clubs of Intermountain Interclub Association will receive a $75 reimbursement if two or more board members attend. The fee includes all materials and lunch. You must pre-register if planning to attend. Deadline to register is March 5th.

Meeting location:
The Ice Sheet at Ogden, 4390 Harrison Blvd., Ogden, Utah, 84403

Here are a few testimonials from a recent seminar:
“Being a new board member this provided much needed information on how to run a successful club.”
“Wish I’d had this earlier- very valuable after being on the board for a year and realizing what we could do differently”
“Absolutely out of this world!”

We hope to see you in Salt Lake City in March!
