ATA staff gave the Archery Industry Masterclass a facelift for 2024. Because many members couldn’t attend the class the day before the Show, sessions will now run two at a time on Jan. 12 and 13. Additionally, the ATA removed the course fee for those attending the Show in person, meaning all Masterclass sessions at the Show are free. The content will also be available online after the Show at a discounted price for ATA members. These changes make the Masterclass more accessible and welcoming to all. Masterclass topics follow four tracks, including business, coaching, marketing and archery tech.
Among the presenters is Randy Walk, former Hoyt president. In one session, Walk will explain how ATA members can transition their business from passion to profit. He’ll share how a leader can properly manage a team of employees to encourage passion for the sport, while reaching the ultimate goal of a profitable business.
