Nick DeForest, AIS Assistant Director of Events, has been keeping busy on a global scale while working from home.
He started an online conference for International School Athletic Directors and Coaches which was promoted through his website (www.globetrottinads.com), podcast, and network of contacts around the world. The Globetrottin' ADs Online Conference was held via Zoom on April 21 and 22 and had 22 hours of workshops and sessions led by 30 different people from 17 different countries.
AIS Director of Events Andy Harrison, and teacher-coaches Sherri Spelic, Molly Berwager, and Michael Anderson, all presented at the conference, as did two AIS alumni, Sara Kullnig and Roxanne Chao.
Overall 200 different virtual attendees from 92 different countries took part in the conference that not only proved a valuable resource for shared information and expertise, but gave a sense of purpose and connection to athletic directors around the globe during this very confusing and uncertain time.
