USA Gymnastics Webinars
Legislatures around the country return to session in the New Year amidst tremendous turmoil in their own ranks, in the entertainment world, and, yes, in sports - including our world of gymnastics.

2018 is an Election Year across the country at the state and many municipal levels. Elected officials are, right now, making pledges and promises to "do something" about the serious issues that have emerged.

Your gymnastics business may be the focus of regulatory and legislative attention. Now, more than ever, you can't afford to be on the sideline when ideas pop up that will focus on your sport and your business.

Listen to the last USA Gymnastics Webinar covering "The Importance of Member Club Participation in Legislation Lobby Day: What You Can Do to Protect Your Club." Learn how to get and stay involved in government action that will affect you every day you open the doors to your business, or travel around the country to pursue your sport!
