Annual Conference and AGM 2019

Dissing the Doldrums

October 5, 2019

This year’s NBKA annual conference will address a theme that brings our members together to develop the kinesiologist profession in New Brunswick and our future as an association. With this in mind, the NBKA has invited three speakers who will lead our association in an introspection on the future of kinesiology in New Brunswick and to the expansion of our association in order to accomplish our mission.

We are proud to announce that Serge Bourdeau, president of the Fédération des Kinésiologues du Québec, Travis Saunders, kinesiology professor at the University of Prince Edward Island and president of Kin PEI, and finally, Vicky Bouffard-Levasseur, kinesiology professor at the Université de Moncton, Edmundston Campus, and certified kinesiologist in New Brunswick will participate in our conference as guest speakers.

We strongly encourage kinesiologists, professors and students to participate in this annual conference. We wish to develop a vision for the future of the kinesiologist profession in New Brunswick and we need the support of everyone to achieve this.

Once again this year, the AGM will be held at lunch time during the conference and we hope for our members to attend and to contribute to the advancement of our association.
