Several hundred leaders from running clubs and events along with coaches attended the 58th RRCA National Convention in Dallas, Texas, on March 17-20,2016, making it one of the most well attended events in recent history. During the RRCA Convention, attendees enjoyed a variety of education sessions and the feedback about the quality of the program content has been overwhelmingly positive.
Keynote speaker Ben Rosario reminded attendees about the importance of our sport and that running saves lives. Following Gilbert Tuhabonye’s emotional presentation of his life story, attendees were encouraged and reminded to run their life with joy.
During the RRCA’s Annual Business meeting the following officers and directors were elected by the RRCA membership to serve on the Board of Directors: Mitchell Garner (President), Jean Arthur (Vice President), Craig Minyard (Treasurer), Sue Brown-Nickerson (Central Director), and Dwight Mikulis (Eastern Director). They join current Board members, Ron Macksoud (Southern Director), George Rehmet (Western Director), and Kelly Richards (At-Large Director) on April 1, 2016 to start their term of service.
The RRCA Convention host along with our sponsors are the backbone of the event. We wish to thank the following for their support and contributions for making the 58th RRCA Convention a success.
