Three keynotes and more than 30 sessions focus on good pool governance and timely topics. As all sessions become final they are posted in our conference app.
Measures That Matter (Monday, Mar. 6)
In the pooling community, we deeply understand the value of what we do — what makes pools different and why they matter. This pooling-specific keynote address will tee up an important conversation about how to quantify and share the value of pooling with others, so that pools can develop and communicate meaningful measures. If you have measures that matter, your pool will be more effective in strategic planning, member communications, performance reporting and more.
Lessons from Pooling Founders (Tuesday, Mar. 7)
This is the only time in the history of pooling that founders and newer executives will be shoulder to shoulder. Panelists will explore what our industry can’t afford to lose amidst changes on the horizon, including the importance of the entrepreneurial spirit both at the time of founding and now. They’ll also provide insight, tell stories and share guidance that only they can offer.
Closing Keynote — One More Thing, One More Time with Paralympic Athlete Josh Sundquist (Wednesday, Mar. 8)
Be sure to stay for Wednesday’s inspiring keynote address with Josh Sundquist, who overcame childhood cancer and the amputation of his left leg to become an incredibly successful Paralympic skier. He’ll participate throughout the full conference to learn about the specific goals, needs and challenges that attendees are facing right now. Then, he’ll close out the conference by sharing what he has learned about us, and help us apply the racing motto that helped him succeed — “one more time, one more thing” — to meet the challenges faced today by pools.
