This year’s convention will include updates on Return on Athletics™ (ROA), which is the NAIA’s proprietary approach to the management of collegiate athletics. We have been working closely with a pilot group of NAIA institutions to gather and build an accurate data profile through which we can measure value. We’re excited to share the preliminary findings with you.
Our keynote speaker is successful entrepreneur with a passion for community service and athletics. Bill Courtney founded Classic American Hardwoods, Inc. and employs 120 people in Memphis, Tennessee. In 2003, he volunteered to coach the football team at Memphis’ inner city Manassas High School. The team’s results – both on and off the field – were documented in Undefeated, the winner of the 2012 Academy Award for Best Feature Length Documentary.
These are just a few highlights of what we have planned. Informative sessions, the best attendees, and the NAIA’s hometown. It doesn’t get much better than that. We look forward to seeing you in a few days.
