2017 Busniess of Curling Symposium
CurlManitoba with support of Curling Canada will be hosting a BUSINESS of CURLING symposium April 21-23, 2017.  The symposium will take place at the Best Western Plus Winnipeg Airport Hotel.
 
The Business of Curling program is a three step process designed to help curling clubs understand the business they are in. Curling clubs are experiencing a variety of problems adapting to this constantly changing environment. Meeting the challenge of survival in the marketplace has prompted them to adopt selected management tools from the private sector. Curling clubs are turning to marketing as a means of providing their customers with improved products and services. During the symposium they will hear from a number of interesting and highly qualified speakers, who will offer their expertise in several key areas which all curling clubs face on a daily basis. This symposium also offers a valuable opportunity to share ideas and experiences with fellow club executives.

Topics to be covered over the three day symposium include:
Membership Recruitment
Customer Service
Adult Learn to Curl
Risk Management
Bonspiels
Volunteers
Scraping, Pebbling, and Stones
