Leaders of the Olympic Movement of the Americas participated in the two-day forum where they engaged in high-level discussions regarding leadership, management, and sport performance principles that are essential to the success of an NOC. 
MIAMI, U.S. (December 10, 2023) — The commitment to advancing the sporting development across the American continent is reinforced thanks to the fruitful two-day discussions held during the 5th Americas Best Practices Symposium that concluded today in Miami. 

Topics discussed at the symposium included strategic planning, sports analytics, good financial governance, performance innovation, social impact, athlete safety and mental health, the legacy of the Pan American Games, digital marketing and more. 

Leaders of all 40 active National Olympic Committees in the Pan American Family attended the symposium with the goal of advancing sporting excellence in their countries. The symposium is organized every two years by the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee in partnership with Panam Sports and Olympic Solidarity. 

The event featured presentations, case study analysis and moderated panel discussions across a variety of topics designed to help the NOCs of the Americas implement new strategies towards achieving their sporting goals. 

USOPC Secretary General Sarah Hirshland, Panam Sports President Neven Ilic and Vice President Susanne Lyons as well as Olympic Solidarity Associate Director Joanna Zipser-Graves were a few of the featured speakers during the symposium. Santiago 2023 Executive Director Harold Mayne-Nicholls also presented about the legacy of the most recent edition of the Pan American Games. 

Key takeaways from the 5th edition of the symposium included the following: 

1 Having good financial practices is tied closely to having strong organizational practices and a transparent process.
2 Thinking big and creating change requires an organizational culture supportive of trying something new and a willingness to fail.
3 Leveraging data can be valuable in influencing public policy and showcasing the value that an organization is providing.
4 Focusing on the value of sport participation within a population can help to build a legacy of community engagement with the Olympic & Paralympic Movement.
5 Sharing stories and creating compelling engagement creates lifelong fans for the growth and sustainability of the Olympic Movement.

“We are thrilled to have brought together a diverse group of leaders from across the Olympic Movement in the spirit of connecting, sharing and learning from one another. We listened, engaged and embraced our diverse perspectives with the ultimate goal of emerging as a more unified and collaborative community. Together, we can empower athletes to reach their greatest potential, on and off the field of play. I want to thank all of the leaders from across the continent for their contributions to this impactful symposium as we all look towards the future of sport in the Americas,” said Panam Sports Vice President, Susanne Lyons.
