Risk Management Workshops for National and Multi-Sport Organizations

(Ottawa, Ontario – May 16, 2016) – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is inviting expressions of interest from National Sport Organizations (NSOs) and Multi-Sport Organizations (MSOs) who wish to host a Risk Management Workshop. The focus of the workshops will be for NSOs and MSOs to learn how to manage predictable and costly challenges that pull resources away from athletes.

Each two-day workshop is part of the Risk Management Project, a multi-year collaboration with the Sport Law & Strategy Group and Brock University, which aims to enhance the effectiveness of decision making among sport leaders using a consistent, sport-specific, and integrated risk management process. The workshop was designed by sport leaders for Canadian sport organizations and aims to provide NSOs and MSOs with the capacity to manage their risks more effectively.

Organizations will be selected to participate in a workshop based on their need, state of readiness, support for True Sport, and willingness to consider new approaches. To date, more than 30 NSOs, MSOs and sport clubs across Canada have participated in a workshop.

Please send expressions of interest to Megan Cumming at mcumming@cces.ca no later than May 31, 2016.
