Facility to Facility Connections

This fall, RFABC will be hosting series of focused and timely sessions on challenges and opportunities facing the recreation sector. Many of the discussions will revisit the wealth of information presented through the webinars and allow members to hear from other members. Under the name of our Association's Magazine, the Facility to Facility initiative will connect members through forums, webinars, and meetings.

Arena Programmers Discussion

Join your peers in a session to share information on how you are returning to arena programming. As we enter Phase 3, many facility staff are working together on following the PHO Orders and Guidelines as they introduce activity on the ice. Session will be facilitated by Gary Paterson.
