U.S. Squash’s Annual Assembly is a forum for individual and organization members to gather together with the Board of Directors and other squash constituencies to discuss important issues involving the organization and squash in the United States.
The Annual Assembly is free to attend for all members of U.S. Squash and includes meetings, presentations and break-out sessions for specific topics and areas of interest. The Board also provides a report on the state of the association, and the CEO provides a managerial report addressing issues of concern and importance to U.S. Squash.
The 2012 Annual Assembly took place in Philadelphia on October 6-7 in conjunction with the 2012 Delaware Investments U.S. Open Squash Championships, and brought together members from across the country to discuss all aspects of squash in the United States, as well as the current bid campaign for the inclusion of squash in the Olympic Games in 2020.
The keynote presentation was made by Mike Lee OBE, who is leading the World Squash Federation’s campaign for squash’s inclusion in the Olympics.
“We have been setting out a campaign to show the way the sport has modernized, improved and innovated. We have engaged the players in presenting to the IOC, and the key thing now is maintaining momentum all the way till they take the final vote,” said Mr. Lee.
