This meeting will be led by ELOC Chair Cindy DePorter and Assistant Chair Tim Murray. The mission of this committee is to strategically plan for the future needs of Licensed Officials and to act as advisors in their development for advancement from “r” to “R” to “S” and to transfer to FEI, and to periodically review/revise the syllabus and educational materials for the training and continuing education programs.

Engineering Success – From Personal Milestones to Team Gold Medals with EquiRatings – Friday, December 11 at 12 p.m. EST: Diarm Byrne and Sam Watson of EquiRatings will be discussing setting goals and targets and ways to measure progress to meet them. Examples will include riders at any level and also show how the same targets are used to guide Olympic success. The process is the same at any level – set a goal and then measure progress to that goal.

Also featuring among the sessions are a sport psychology session with Coach Daniel Stewart as well as a physical fitness seminar from Coach Tony Sandoval. The USEA Volunteer Committee will also meet in an open format on Zoom that will be available for viewing.

This content plan will also include more instructional videos published throughout the week.
