The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Assembly will bring its annual two-day meeting back to Colorado Springs this fall.
The meeting, held in Colorado Springs for the third consecutive year, will be at the Antlers Hilton Hotel from Sept. 20-21, just after the conclusion of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. More than 400 participants are expected.
“We’re excited to bring this extremely important event back to Colorado Springs,” said Scott Blackmun, USOC CEO. “It will mark an exciting time just after the conclusion of the London Games and we hope to channel some of that Olympic and Paralympic spirit back in our home city as we work to strengthen and advance the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic movements.”
The assembly was initiated in 2005 to keep dialogue open between members, staff and volunteer leadership; and to help further the Olympic and Paralympic Movements in the United States.
The assembly program includes town hall meetings, joint sessions of USOC constituent councils, panel discussions a gala and a general address from Blackmun and USOC chairman Larry Probst.
More details on assembly will be posted in the coming months on TeamUSA.org.
