RED DEER - Hockey Alberta would like to thank the sponsors, presenters, attendees, and staff who all contributed to a successful organizational summit.
The 2022 Hockey Alberta Summit presented by Sprung Arenas, Stantec and CANA took place in Red Deer, at the Cambridge Hotel and Conference Centre, June 10-12. The summit brought the leaders of our sport together for a weekend of Community, Collaboration & Innovation. Focusing on member appreciation and education, the Summit consisted of presentations, workshop sessions, expert panels and social engagement. Through these various forums, we explored both the challenges and opportunities facing our sport and our members that deliver it.
The summit began on Friday, June 10 with a powerful keynote presentation from Dr. Jody Carrington of Olds. Carrington told the approximately 200 people in attendance that society is facing a looming mental health crisis that is immense, and that our children are suffering from uncertainty, fear and “emotional dysregulation”. She noted that one in four children between the ages of 12 and 18 years have a plan to end their lives.
Moving into Saturday, the summit included presentation streams for both presidents and administrators, as well as development leaders. A wide variety of topics were covered by numerous speakers and the day was capped off with a member appreciation night at Bo’s Bar and Stage.
The final day featured more presentations in the morning, and a visit from Hockey Canada President & C.O.O, Scott Smith.
