Club Conference 2021 Final Agenda

Delegates will gather for our National Club Conference on Saturday – with an impressive list of speakers and presentations lined up.

Paula Dunn is our Keynote Speaker and will address leadership issues as she draws on her experiences as an athlete, coach and team manager, most recently as heading up the strong British team performance at the Paralympics in Tokyo.

David Ovens, the new Chair of scottishathletics, and Colin Hutchison, our chief executive, will map out their vision for the years ahead and how they hope to continue to build growth and momentum in our sport.

Earlier, around 60 attendees to the National Club Conference will have been welcomed by David Fallon, our Head of Development.

Later there are presentations from Springburn Harriers and Aberdeen AAC with opportunities for delegates from clubs to network and share good practice.

Erin Gillen, a sportscotland Youth Ambassador, closes off the day with a focus on athletes for those in the younger age groups.

Presentations from Saturday will go online in due course on our website.
