A Business of Curling Symposium is scheduled for October 13, from 11 am to 5 pm, with location yet to be confirmed. This symposium will be of interest to PEI curling club managers, presidents, and Board of Directors members, club volunteers and staff.
Please confirm whether or not your curling club will have representatives at this session. Please confirm by August 22 as plans will be finalized later next week. Confirmations can be sent to email@example.com.
Although, at this time you do not have to confirm names or numbers, it is our hope that this session will be attended by those in the club who make the decisions, and as we are hoping you will see and hear things you will want to try, we suggest bringing as many of those people as possible (volunteers and staff alike).

Delivering Superior Customer Service
Building the business of curling has many facets that need to be coordinated under one umbrella called “superior customer service”. We are convinced keeping what you worked so hard to get (members) can be linked directly to delivering superior customer service. This session will guide you to that philosophy.
This one day session will be presented by Danny Lamoureux, the Canadian Curling Association’s Director of Curling Club Development. The Business of Curling program has been delivered across Canada to hundreds of clubs, manager and Board of Directors volunteers since 1995. Danny also managed the Ottawa Curling Club for 16 years.
