Summer 2012 Events

The Canadian InterCollegiate Sailing Association invites YOU to join us at the event!!

This fun filled weekend promises great discussion and will begin with:

Open Space Session – each team is to bring something they wish to discuss (a challenge their team is having).  This time we are also asking each team to bring a short 20 minute presentation on something they do well and would like to share with the rest of CICSA.  Example Issues & Team Strengths: insurance, yacht club negotiations, team commitment, website, social media, how to start a team, how to start a learn to sail club, performance, etc…

CICSA’s Goals and Direction Session – We will review the findings from the committee, come to common ground on CICSA goals for this year and the following few.  We will go about taking the first steps to accomplish this together.

Social Media and Team Development – reviewing best practices from school’s across Canada.  Lets get social and talk it up!  **social media night – promises to be a MAJOR highlight!

Meet the Exec and join a Committee- As CICSA looks to tap into our unlimited potential, we need to work closer to accomplish our goals.  It’s about building a culture in our Canadian Collegiate community.. the summer summit will be your first taste.

Board Meeting – As per usual a brief board meeting will be held to overview official approvals for the fall and other long-term requirements, the board meeting will begin at 1PM on Sunday June 23 and end at 5 PM.

Each school should send a minimum of 2 representatives to Montreal for the Summer Summit, and no more than 5 (upon special requests, team may be permitted to include more than for large team representatives will be considered upon request).  We hope to see you there in person! (we will be offering Board member call in via Skype for Sunday’s BOD meeting, not to worry our microphone system now works like a charm!)
