GW Sports Business Association

GW Sports Business Association The official page of the Sport Business Association at George Washington University. Stay engaged with the industry through our news updates and SBA events

The George Washington University Sports Business Association is a student organization committed to connecting GW students with the sports industry. The organization falls under the School of Business and resulted from the rebranding of the former Sports Marketing Association. Though the primary responsibility of the organization was originally to aid in the marketing and execution of the annual Sports Industry Networking and Career Conference (SINC), the group has evolved and now incorporates many more aspects of the industry and student life into its annual affairs. SBA is made up of both undergraduate students interested in the field of sports as well as graduate students pursuing their Sport Management MBAs from GW. The organization works to promote the Sport Management program at the university and to get students engaged and informed about one of the world's most exciting and largest industries. Their activities and events throughout the year include: ---Tabling at student organization fairs to promote the group and educate incoming students about the program ---The annual Sport Industry Networking and Career Conference (SINC) and the annual New York Career Trek ---Panels, site-visits, workshops, roundtables, and various other networking events ---Social activities such as fantasy leagues, outings to local sporting events, and watch-parties for major sporting events

Mission: The GW Sports Business Association is a student organization, for both undergrad and grad students, which promotes the GW Sport Management program and creates opportunities for students to engage with the sports industry.

Sports Industry Networking & Career Conference

Great volunteer opportunity coming up soon!

Octagon is seeking volunteers for an athlete signing event. They mentioned this at the SINC Conference so wanted to remind you to sign up.

Emmitt Smith wants YOU to volunteer

When: March 29-31, 2019

Where: Dulles Expo Center, Chantilly, VA

What: Octagon client Emmitt Smith and his technology company (PROVA, which authenticates memorabilia with a digital chip) will be at a big autograph show in Chantilly. Emmitt and PROVA are looking for lots of volunteers to help “tag” and “witness” the autographs for a large number of athletes.

Why: An autographed item from Emmitt as a thank you, the opportunity to meet other sports legends, and the chance to see the inner workings of an autograph show (which, for those who haven’t been, is really something to experience).

Requirements:

- Are 19 or older and interested in sports

- Can commit to the entirety of one or more days (Friday 1-8p; Saturday 8a-5p; Sunday 9a-4p). The more days, the better, but one full day at a minimum.

- Have basic technological proficiency (the authentication system uses an Android device, but as long as you have a basic comfort with technology, you’re fine)

- Have a good grasp of the English language



For more information: Email [email protected] to sign up or ask questions. To get a sense of the show and see what athletes will be there, visit this link.
