"The presenter was very well prepared and touched on all the high points without going into too much detail. I took three pages of notes and have two specific items I plan to implement immediately. Thanks for providing this worthwhile member benefit; I look forward to taking advantage of many more in the future!" -Kathleen Cartland, Executive Director, Charleston Area Sports Commission
"The NASC event webinar series and format was exactly what we needed! From sharing and marketing our webinar to facilitating the session, the NASC provided a tremendous resource for us to promote our upcoming site selection process. Even more, the whole session was recorded and made available to others following the event. The resource is a tremendous value and opportunity for rights holders within the NASC and we plan to use it even more!" Jeff Jarnecke, NCAA Associate Director of Championships and Alliances
