For nearly three decades, Terry McEnany, MD, served as a cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon at hospitals throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Ohio, California, and Wisconsin, in addition to holding professorships at institutions such as Brown University, the University of California, and Ohio State University. Now a ski instructor in Aspen, Colorado, Terry McEnany helps students of all ages gain their footing on the slopes, and he is a member of the Professional Ski Instructors of America.
Each year, the Professional Ski Instructors of America and American Association of Snowboard Instructors (PSIA-AASI) provides a forum for ski and snowboard educators to network and collaborate at the annual PSIA-AASI Fall Conference. Drawing organization members, snowsports school representatives, and leading instructors, the event comprises two portions: the Directors’ Seminar and Education Fall Conference. It allows attendees to stay abreast of developments in technical manuals and the PSIA-AASI National Standards, encouraging collaboration and the development of efficient, objective, and consistent best practices.
The 2015 Fall Conference will take place from October 22 to 25 at Copper Mountain, Colorado, and will include both indoor and on-snow sessions. It will mark the third annual iteration of the Directors’ Seminar, which welcomes ski school directors from across the United States to network with industry leaders and work toward improving business practices and educational standards.
