What are Power of Influence Meetings?
The Power of Influence meetings came about through the formation of an Ad Hoc committee that was formed to a) strengthen the association; b) garner more support from members of the association; c) inform members of what the association is currently doing; and d) collect ideas that would improve and build on the support the association provides to our coaches. It was decided each region would meet with coaches of influence in their region (i.e., ALL Athletic Administrators, Athletic Coordinators, Girls’ Coordinators, and Head Coaches of ANY SPORT) and bring the message from the meetings back to their staffs. It is a great way to give coaches ownership in what we are doing.
Each region is to have one meeting held before the February Regional Meetings and another one held in the late spring to inform coaches of any new initiatives and prepare coaches for Coaching School. Regions are not limited to just two meetings as it is perfectly acceptable to have several smaller ones. THSCA will furnish each region with specific content and a suggested agenda for each meeting.
