Moody’s hour will top a busy three-day schedule that will cover the breadth of short track operation, with a focus on making the most of short track-friendly recessionary times.  Promoters who have seen multiple recessions will compare experience this season and discuss what they foresee for 2010.  The Workshop will also include remarks from Promoters of the Year Joe and Walt Doellefeld.  Other sessions will discuss new media promotion, attempting to sum up what promoters have learned about using new Web techniques and Web-based social media.  Cary Agajanian and other Workshops attorneys will answer promoters’ questions about risk management, business, and regulation.  The Workshop will be a “Short Track Short Course,” with dual focus on business and promotion and on operations and competition.
