Dear Southeast Region Associations
 
    Hope everyone is finally getting through this very unusual winter!  Spring is really in the air – we moved our clocks ahead this past weekend, so that’s a good indication, right? Yeah, right…
 
SAVE THE DATE!!!!  THE SOUTH CAROLINA ASSOCIATION IS HOSTING THE 2014 USATF SOUTHEAST REGION OPEN TRACK AND FIELD CHJAMPIONSHIPS ON MAY 3-4.  THE LOCATION WILL BE ANNOUNCED VERY SHORTLY SO STAY TUNED AND GET THOSE ATHLETES READY!
 
 
And, from the National Associations Office:
         There is a LEVEL 1 school manual on the CE website which offers detailed information for hosting a school. 
         We currently have three individuals who serve as LEVEL 1 CE regional coordinators, Dave Shrock, Matt Lydum, Dave Pavlansky; they are charged to support LEVEL 1 schools in their region by assisting associations to organize a school or to go into an association location and manage a school.
         The CE Committee has been working to improve the quality control of our instructors. It is an obligation we have with the recent NCACE accreditation we received as well as assuring a consistent level of teaching across all schools. In the recent past several associations have recruited either National office CE staff or CE regional coordinators to assist them in organizing a school.
 
         Associations should have received their preliminary 2013 Accreditation Statistics from Desiree.  Please contact us if you find yourself needing assistance in meeting the current standards.
