The CSMTA 2010 Conference Banquet, held on the Saturday night,
featured well-known, award-winning athletes from a wide range of sports
disciplines, all of whom spoke of the benefits they had gleaned from working

The organizing committee for the event, headed by Kip Petch,
more than succeeded in their endeavour to provide attendees an
interdisciplinary, well-rounded learning experience – they also furnished an
opportunity for RMTs to network with colleagues while attaining practical

CSMTA would like to thank all its sponsors for helping to
make the event a success.   Next year’s
conference, to be held in Ontario,
is already being planned– more details will be provided in the months to come.
