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.

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.
