Last March 2018, Badminton Asia had organized an Administration and Event Course in conjunction with the Leaders Meeting (Development). In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This is a Pilot Project and a point of entry for the higher-level courses that runs at the Continental Confederation level.
More than 25 participants from 17 countries attended the course and the outcome was fantastic. The sessions was demanding, but full of joy and participants were getting along despite having language barrier. It was a great opportunity to create interest some of the related topics such as Introduction of Stakeholders, Membership, Organizational Development & Administration and Sport & Player Development.
Working in teams, the participants exerted their best efforts in the design stage. The facilitators made themselves available to the groups for consultation.
