Chatted with Roger Goodell lately? How about Rob Manfred, Gary Bettman or Adam Silver?
You’ll have the chance to catch up with all three, and several over sports heavyweights, during the two-day APSE Commissioners Meetings in New York City.
This year’s agenda again includes NASCAR’s Brian France and Don Garber of MLS, as well as top representatives from the USOC.
Set for April 21-22 in Midtown Manhattan, the Commissioners Meetings is your annual opportunity to discuss issues of access, credentialing and more with the heads of U.S. sports’ major governing bodies.
It’s also an opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones as upwards of two dozen sports editors from around the country converge on New York. Take in a show, sample some of the best cuisine in the world; there’s nothing like springtime in Gotham.
Speaking of food, it’s offered at most of the seven sessions. And offices of the various leagues and organizations are generally a short walk or cab ride from one another.
Please, if you have not already, let Jeff Rosen (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you plan to attend or have further questions.
