Volunteers are the foundation of the NASC. In the last year, more than 100 committee volunteers contributed to progress and growth of the NASC in many ways including:

  • Referring industry colleagues to join the Association
  • Recommending educational content and programming for the annual NASC Sports Event Symposium, the original conference and longest-running reverse tradeshow for the sports tourism industry
  • Enhancing mentoring activities for new members and first time Symposium attendees
  • Establishing new categories and serving on judging panels for the annual member awards
  • Developing CSEE modules
  • Creating the inaugural NASC Sports Legacy Fund community service project

We invite you to respond to this year’s call for volunteers. We need your skills, passion, and perspectives to build a
vibrant, inclusive, and multicultural group of volunteer leaders throughout our committees.

The NASC is YOUR association; committee participation is one of the best ways to be engaged and help contribute to the
decision-making that continues to position the NASC as the most valuable resource available to sports event professionals. Members, including new committee members and those who currently serve, must respond to the call for volunteers by May 8, 2015.

Thank you for your consideration!

 2013-2014 committees and volunteer opportunities

Volunteers provide exceptional experience and essential tools to our vibrant community and are the foundation of the National Association of Sports Commissions.

Sports Legacy Fund Enriches Host Communities of NASC Sports Event Symposium

March 23, 2012

The Sports Legacy Fund was created with the purpose to enrich each community that we visit during the NASC  Sports Event Symposium.  Each of these communities has welcomed us with open arms and allows us to enjoy the many things each destination has to offer.  The NASC continues to be a leader in an industry that is rewarding both on and off of the field. To date we have provided equipment or funding with host communities in Dallas, Omaha, Denver, Columbus and Greensboro.

With the help of our community host in Hartford, we have been able to identify the Nutmeg State Games of Hartford as the recipient of the Sports Legacy Fund donation.  Each year we challenge our colleagues to make the communities we travel to as a collective group even better, for the right reasons, as well as investing in our own industry.  We have received a variety of new and used sports equipment and included cash donations to support community programs.  It is as simple as each of us bringing in just one item to help with the fundraising auction. What a significant difference we can leave to a community and to our own industry.

With less than 30 days to our Symposium, we still need your help.  Please commit to sending at least one item for the fundraiser auction or one piece of used equipment to be donated.  Donation forms are on the NASC website and a wish list of items can be found there as well.  Let’s continue our Legacy.

We look forward to seeing and meeting with each of you at the Symposium and proud to share in our efforts.

Kevin
