November 22, 2019 - Mentoring Credit Checks Being Mailed Out this Week

For each mentoring opportunity coaches took advantage of – they received a $25 credit as part of our MDSI Coach Education Programs. Checks for those credits are being mailed out to Head Coaches, to please distribute to their staff members. Participation was not pretty – 3.55% of all registered coaches! Clubs need to make sure their coaches are all aware of the educational opportunities and have them  take advantage of those that are  paid for by MDSI.
