2009 CYA Annual General Meeting and Conference

Toronto  Ontario 

dimanche, le 22 novembre, 2009 - lundi, le 23 novembre, 2009

The Canadian Yachting Association is hosting its AGM and Conference in Toronto from the 19th to 22nd of November 2009. We need to work with our members and those interested in the future of sailing to find out how we can make our sport stronger, more successful, better organised and more attractive. We need to find out what you think about the Association and what you regard as the key issues for discussion.

The AGM planning workshops will be facilitated by international sports management firm, ASMT (Atlantic Sports Management & Training) Ltd. They would like to get your views on the CYA and the sport of sailing in Canada so that we can ensure that the AGM is a highly productive few days.
