In an effort to meet the needs of individual who desire to enhance their knowledge of interscholastic athletic administration and cannot attend the national conference or state conference, the NIAAA offers selected courses utilizing the internet through webinars. This offers the opportuinity to take Leadership Training courses from the comforts of the office or home and receive the same quality instruction, ability to ask questions and interact with peers as is provided in the classroom setting. The cost for a webinar class is $125 which includes the course manual and a certificate of completion.
It would be suggested to use a computer that is connected to the greatest bandwidth (DSL, Cable or T-1 line) which could be at your school if you do not have high speed at home. Slower speeds take longer to load pictures/power points. Students should also have a sound card, speakers and a microphone (for purposes of asking questions). A chat room is also available so students can ask questions by keystroking questions to the instructor.

Please congratulate Carter Wilson (Decatur, HS, GADA President 2009-2010) for being a part of one of the only books to be nationally published for interscholastic athletic administrators. The NIAAA has been working with the publishers for years to finalize this product. Please examine it on Amazon.com or at NIAAA's website.
It might be possible to have these at the conference to sell. I will check with NIAAA.
Thank you Carter for being a leader and representing Georgia so well. Nice job!
