NACMA Selects 1999-2000 Award Recipients
ORLANDO, Florida -- The Officers of the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators (NACMA) have selected their award recipients for the 1999-2000 year.
Award recipients include Pizza Hut with the Corporate Award for Significant Contributions to Intercollegiate Marketing; and Deena Diboll, assistant athletics director for marketing at Fresno State with the Outstanding Individual Achievement Award.
The awards were presented today at the NACMA/NAADD Awards Luncheon during NACMA's ninth annual Workshop at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida.
NACMA is the first organization of its kind to provide educational and networking opportunities, enhancement of acceptable operating standards and ethics, and establishment of the overall prestige and understanding of the profession of athletics marketing administrators.
NACMA is administered by NACDA, which is now in its 35th year. NACDA serves as the professional and educational association for more than 6,100 college athletics directors, associates, assistants and conference commissioners at more than 1,600 institutions throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada. Through its series of management seminars, clinics and workshops and publication of the bi-monthly magazine Athletics Administration, NACDA offers educational opportunities to its members. More than 1,200 athletics administrators annually attend the NACDA Convention. Additionally, NACDA operates the Sears Directors' Cup program, which honors the all-sports champion in each of the NCAA Divisions -- I, II, III -- and the NAIA, for a total of four trophies.
