NASSM 2020 Conference
May 28 - 30, 2020
On behalf of the North American Society for Sport Management, I am pleased to welcome you to our inaugural virtual conference.
Dr. Lisa Kihl, the section heads, and the reviewers have done an outstanding job in assembling a wonderful academic program, and Orland Hoeber and Stacy Warner worked hard to provide a virtual home for all these excellent contributions. I am proud of how NASSM members have dealt with this crisis, and chose to use it as a venue for growth and development, engaging with their peers in this new virtual setting, rather than closing themselves off from their colleagues all together.
We offer you more than 300 presentations, with approximately 40% of them choosing to share their work through a URL. Additionally, spread out over two days, we are offering you an excellent line up of synchronous contributions, in the form of workshops, a keynote panel discussing the effects of CoVid-19 on our industry, and of course, the Annual General Membership (AGM) meeting. All of our content will be publicly available giving our members the chance to share their work with their own respective networks, in a way that might not have been possible before.
NASSM chose to take the current crisis head-on and learn valuable lessons in how our members could connect with each other in new ways, and we hope it will lead us to a path in which there are ongoing virtual platforms for our members to engage in, allowing them to connect with their peers in new ways, and find new avenues to increase the impact of their scholarship.
This virtual conference could not have taken place without your willingness to explore new paths, and for that, the NASSM Executive Council would like to thank you all for taking this journey with us.
