July Monthly Board Member Update

With the summer months finally here, for some of us it could mean tackling those projects that have been put off all year long. Make sure you take some time and walk around your rink to figure out what maintenance projects need your attention. Remember to talk with your full and part time staff. They are a good resource for ideas about what may need to be addressed in your facility. Hopefully everyone had a successful ice season!!

The 40th Annual MIAMA Fall Conference is just a couple short months away, September 8th-11th at the wonderful Breezy Point Resort in Breezy Point, Minnesota. The committee has been working hard to give you a conference you won’t want to miss. Guest speakers include: Lou Nanne, Joe Marlarkey and Jerrid Sebesta. The board has put together a very strong conference lineup for the membership. MIAMA is happy to say we will be offering both ISI and STAR courses this year. ISI will be offering their Certified Arena Operator (CAO) and STAR will be offering Human Resource Management. You won’t want to miss our special 40th Annual event. The Boat Cruise with special guest Lou Nanne to tell some great stories. The first 90 attendees to register and pay will be allowed on the boat. So please don’t miss out on this great event. We will round out this conference with some great breakout sessions that include: options to dehumidifying your building, Life in a pro arena and Disaster Recovery just to name a few.
