SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The general membership meeting during the convention at the Montelucia Resort & Spa gave the Association for Women in Sports’ Board of directors a chance to get the membership caught up on some of the many projects we’re working on and to give everyone a chance to air their views.
Going regional: First, we announced the introduction of a series of regional events that we hope to put on all over the country beginning with a gathering in Charlotte this August. The plan is to have one regional event a month until the May 2014 convention in Orlando, Fla.
August – Charlotte
September – New York City
October – Atlanta/Athens, Ga.
November – San Diego
December – Central Florida
January – Los Angeles/Orange County
February – Oklahoma City
March – Indianapolis (held during APSE contest judging)
April – Nashville and/or Dallas (held during women’s and/or men’s Final Four)
