The aim of the symposium is to bring together a panel of experts who will present relevant and thought-provoking topics to expand our knowledge base and foster growth in the curling community.
The recent pandemic has drastically shifted our business landscape. The symposium will allow participants to gain awareness on changing trends, policies and challenges faced by Curling Club Operators.
Collaboration and outreach to increase our membership and diversity, and to ensure prosperity, is more important now than it is has ever been.
