Chief Executive of Volleyball Ireland, Gary Stewart, has been added to the list of speakers being featured at the Welsh Sports Association (WSA) Sustainability in Sport Conference.
The conference will be hosted at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium in November, in collaboration with the Federation of Irish Sport, and will unite the sport and leisure industry with the collective mission of a sustainable sector in mind.
Members from within both WSA and Federation of Irish Sport membership will speak at the event.
The Football Association of Wales’ Noel Mooney, Swim Wales’ Fergus Feeney and Canoe Wales’ Alistair Dickson, Newport Live’s Steve Ward, and Dilwyn Griffiths from Wales Golf will all represent WSA membership.
Jennifer Huygen will represent strategic partners Community Leisure UK, while Jack Baker from the Lawn Tennis Association will also be speaking.
Meanwhile, Impact 3 Zero’s founder Patrick Haslett and David Gilroy from Meath County Council will be joined by the newly announced Gary Stewart from Ireland.
Stewart is Chief Executive of Volleyball Ireland, who were awarded the Irish Sport Industry’s National Governing Body of the Year and became the first sports body to win the Carmichael Annual Report Good Governance Award.
WSA CEO, Andrew Howard, commented:
“The WSA is delighted to add yet another expert speaker to the panel for the Sustainability in Sport Conference. This event is a perfect and vital opportunity to share best practice across not only organisations within the sport and leisure sector, but also nations.
“Within our mission to set sport up for a successful future, sustainability plays a massive role, so we are thrilled to be able to offer the sector this platform to collaborate in tackling a key issue that goes beyond our borders.
“There is already a lot of good work going on around Welsh and Irish sport in making the sector more sustainable, and the WSA is thoroughly looking forward to sharing this best practice in November.”
