2005-2006 Atlantic Region Year End Report Posted on Nov 28th, 2006

Post a comment

CANSI Atlantic ran one cross country instructors level I course and one refresher last year in Atlantic region. One new level I course conductor was certified bringing the total number of course conductors in the Atlantic region to two.

The number of courses offered was down from 4 courses in the previous year. One reason perhaps was the higher cost that was charged - $170 up from $140 or so in previous years. The idea of the higher price was to gain more regional revenue to offset the high cost of sending a Tech Rep to National Meetings.

Last year, the fact that Keith Nicol would have had to pay between $500 and $1000 to attend the National meeting out of his own pocket, meant that he couldn’t attend. However charging higher amounts may not work as a way to raise extra local revenue since last year our region only made about $200 extra from courses. This is a serious question that will need to be examined since our small population may make it very difficult to attend future Tech Meetings unless we can raise regional CANSI revenues.
