The Northeast District held our annual spring athletic director’s conference and awards banquet on April 15 and April 16. This was our 53rd Annual Awards Program. The Sunday night banquet was hosted at the Sheraton Suites in Cuyahoga Falls. The Northeast district had over 96 athletic directors attending our Spring conference and 136 at the Award’s Banquet. The agenda for the day was kicked off by OIAAA Executive Director Bruce Brown addressing the attendees to highlight the current initiatives of the OIAAA. The keynote presentation this year was delivered by Mr. Jack Slavinski a leadership coach at various levels of education, athletics, and business. His experience is rooted in business, having consulted with such groups at General Electric, Xerox, and many others. He utilizes the “Lead4Influence” platform along with current research, science and personal experiences.
The workshop also included presentations from Positive Coaching Alliance on coaching development and parent relationships. There was also breakout sessions on positive cheering sections, A.D. Certifications, and professional organizations. The OHSAA also provided us with the Town Hall and Referendum Update. Thank you to Dr. Deborah Moore and OHSAA Commissioner Dan Ross for presenting at our conference and providing critical updates from the state office.
Lastly, a special thank you to Phil Cassella for all of his help and organizational efforts in putting on this year’s conference.
