APSE member editors can catch up with commissioners and presidents from the NBA, NHL, NCAA, MLS, NASCAR, MLB and (hopefully, probably) the NFL during the two-day APSE Commissioners Meetings in New York City.
Set for April 20-21 in Manhattan, the Commissioners Meetings are 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. And of course, when you’re not rubbing elbows with the sports gods, we hear rumors there’s a thing or two to see in New York City.
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 Gary Potosky (email@example.com) know if you plan to attend or have further questions.
