ASBA Technical Meeting Recap

If you were at the ASBA's recent Technical Meeting, you know how valuable it was. The opening general session by Robert Stevenson, whose alternately serious and humorous take on business practices ("How the Best Got Better") kicked off the 2010 event. From that point on, sessions of all kind continued to entertain and enlighten participants.

The programming for the meeting had something for all divisions: Tennis, Track, Indoor and Fields, plus general business topics. Within divisional programming, topics ranged from highly technical ("Vapor Emission Testing," presented as part of the Indoor track) to interactive (such as the Tennis Division's "Problem-Solving Roundtable and Tricks of the Trade.")

Divisional meetings were held to address ASBA's four facility divisions, while at separate times, two other meetings were held (Professional and Supplier) in order to allow those with interests in specific types of facilities to attend those meetings as well.

Perhaps the only unfortunate thing about the ASBA Technical Meeting was the fact that participants often had to decide between various high-quality programs. To catch up on anything you missed (or if you weren't at the meeting, to get a sample of the great sessions that were offered), go to ASBA's website,, then choose "Events" from the top menu bar. From the drop-down menu, click on "Technical Meeting Presentations." All presentations are presented in .pdf format.

Note: Like what you see here? Don't miss the 2011 meeting. Make plans to attend ASBA's premier event -- it will be held December 1-6 at the J.W. Marriott Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, California. Information will be sent to all ASBA members automatically, but others can request to be added to the list by contacting the Association directly at 866-501-ASBA (2722), or by going to the web site,
