NFL LECTURE SERIES COMES TO UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA
The National Football League's "Career In Sports" Lecture Series will come to the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education's Mahler Auditorium on Tuesday, November 16th from 6:30 - 8:30 PM. Admission is free to all college students and the public.
The series is part of the NFL's community outreach program surrounding Super Bowl XXXIV to be played in Atlanta on January 30, 2000. The lecture series, held at Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Morehouse College, is intended to be informative and entertaining forums that provide young people with an idea of what it takes to enter and succeed in various sports careers.
"There are so many different types of sports related careers out there," said Sue Robichek, Director of Special Events-Planning for the National Football League. "The goal of this program is to expose college students to a few of those careers and let industry experts provide advice and guidance".
The panel discussion and Q&A will feature experts in various fields, with a local moderator (either from a local TV affiliate or the university/college). Scheduled to speak at the University of Georgia on the topic of sports marketing are John Cordova of Coca Cola and Steve Phelps of NFL Properties. Speaking on the topic of sports media will be Linda Cohn (ESPN), Fred Hickman (CNN) and Len Pasquarelli (CBS Sportsline).
The NFL will provide a small gift for each attendee and conduct a free raffle for NFL prizes at the end of the evening. They have sponsored the program since Super Bowl XXX in Tempe, Arizona. Past speakers have covered topics such as sports marketing, media, law, event/facilities management, broadcasting/production and more.
