NWBA Annual Congress

Overview - NWBA Annual Congress

The National Wheelchair Basketball Association has announced that it will hold the first NWBA Annual Congress at the Cheyenne Conference Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs, June 14-17. All NWBA members have an opportunity to attend. 

The Annual Congress was developed based on the feedback from members in the 2016-17 season survey. During the Congress, ample time has been scheduled for members to discuss key items within the respective divisions. Divisional leaders will also have an opportunity to discuss their guidelines with the Board of Directors.

The NWBA Annual Meeting is set for Saturday, June 16, and features:

  • Annual State of the NWBA Address
  • Proposed NWBA Bylaw Amendments
  • Any Board of Director Elections

The concept of the Annual Congress is to provide members an opportunity to attend a variety of best practice seminars that are pertinent to the overall development for the member and the NWBA. These sessions will be led by experts in their respective field. Furthermore, the NWBA will conduct round table discussions that are led by NWBA members to share their knowledge of how they have overcome obstacles and are successful in their community for marketing, fundraising, team management, tournament operations, etc.
