2nd Annual NACDA Spring Symposium presented by IMG College
Schedule of Events
NOTE: If you are a corporate sponsor interested in this event, please contact Chris Green at firstname.lastname@example.org
The NACDA Spring Symposium presented by IMG College was created to fill a noticeable void in NACDA's professional development curriculum for member athletics directors. In an effort to differentiate our programming, we opted to utilize relationships with military academies, as they house the premier leadership incubators in America. While there are separate interactive sessions for both ADs and their spouses/partners, the agenda also includes combined sessions where family and group dynamics can be discussed.
