In addition to the changes noted above, USATF is committed to providing better resources to both our Associations and event directors to improve overall support for the sanction program. USATF will provide enhanced educational resources on best practices with regard to event management and with the assistance and collaboration of our partners in the field, USATF plans to create training courses for event directors in order to increase their knowledge on topics such as risk management, medical safety, security and event management. Look for those additional resource tools over the coming months.
