With a total of 90 delegates in attendance, the 2017 Africa Leadership Conference held 24-28 April was the biggest ever! 

The conference agenda was designed to include and incorporate a full day Athlete Leadership Congress, and a full day of Youth Activation conference. 19 athlete leaders from across the Africa Region attended, and held impactful discussions on athlete leadership. A total of 14 Program delegates led sessions at this conference, sharing best practices and inspiring younger programs and leaders to make an even bigger difference. Program chairpersons spent several hours in a session reviewing issues of program governance. Several regional committees in attendance were introduced at this conference, and these included the 50th Anniversary Committee, the Africa Leadership Council, the Athlete Input Council and the Unified Sports Committee. 

This successful conference is all towards the 2016-2020 objective: “Building Inclusive Communities”.
