ELS19: EXERCISE LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
- Published: March 13 2019 12:17
This year at our Summit we are offering something new
At the NSFA 2019 Summit we are offering a new program: a full day Smart Alice Intervention Training from Alice House focused on identifying signs of domestic violence. As fitness instructors, we interact with so many people on a very regular basis. With the movement towards better mental health awareness happening all around us, the skills provided by the Alice House are important and valuable, as much or more so than the other skills we offer our members.
What will I get out of this session?
SmartAlice training provides an easy to remember action model to build participant skills in learning to see warning signs, believe the Victim/Survivor, support them with safety planning, and relieve isolation by providing appropriate referrals.

NSON 2019 Summit - CALL FOR WORKSHOPS
- Published: March 01 2019 12:08
CALL FOR WORKSHOPS
The summit organizing committee has been hard at work creating a vibrant program, which includes plenary panels under each sub-theme topic and a variety of hands-on workshops. At this stage we would like to open the call for workshops. We have 30 and 60 minute workshop blocks available, so if you feel you could present something to fit under one, two or all of these topics please email Wayne McKay at
We would prefer hands-on workshops and workshops that use the outdoors versus indoor spaces, but are open to any/all suggestions. Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort affords us a wide variety of possible locations on site.
