I was lucky enough to attend the Inaugural Women’s Summit last year in Columbus, OH. I wasn’t sure what to expect with it being the first year that NASC put something like this together – it was great, everyone was a first timer!
The first gathering of the Summit was the opening reception. It was relaxed and a great opportunity to meet other women in the industry. I met several colleagues I had not had the pleasure of meeting before, and are now friends. The thing I enjoy most about NASC events (Symposium, 4S, and now Women’s Summit) is the opportunity to meet others in the industry. I’m able to take the relationships I build and use it as a help line with any questions I may have regarding the sports world.
The second day we had inspiring speakers, opportunities to talk about issues we encounter in our jobs as a group and were able to experience Tourney Town for Women’s Final Four (probably my favorite part of the event.) Not only was I able to gather information from the sessions, but I was able to take some fun things they did with Tourney Town as mental notes for events we host in my community.
For a first-year event I thought the NASC team, Columbus and committee members that were involved knocked the event out of the ballpark. It was fun, educational and inspiring. I look forward to attending this year in Tampa, April 3-5, 2019. You should attend too! For more information check out the website: Women's Summit 2019. Don’t forget, you also receive 2 CSEE credits for attending.
