NASC Wraps Up Oklahoma City Meeting with Record Attendance
The National Association of Sports Commissions (NASC), the governing body of the $8.7 billion sports events industry, celebrated record attendance for its annual symposium held here last week.
815 attendees, including 206 first-timers, participated in last week’s NASC Symposium to elect new NASC leadership, honor members with industry awards and participate in dozens of continuing education programs led by industry leadership.
Also, during the event the NASC Sports Legacy Fund raised $14,000 to benefit Oklahoma Cleats for Kids, an Oklahoma City-based organization that collects, recycles and distributes new and gently used athletic shoes and equipment to kids in need.
National Association of Sports Commissions Board Chair Kevin Smith presents a $14,000 grant to Cleats for Kids’ Stacy McDaniels and youth beneficiaries of the program at the 2014 NASC Symposium held in Oklahoma City last week.
