NCAA Convention Gets Underway In Atlanta
The annual NCAA Convention has gotten underway at the Atlanta (Ga.) Marriott Marquis and Hyatt Regency. There is generally a broad cross-section of division-specific and association-wide meetings, committee meetings, forums and other similar events.
A recent Associated Press story outlined the agenda of NCAA interim president James Isch - to carry on the legacy of Myles Brand.
Isch says he will reinforce the governing body's commitment to academic reform and diversity in athletic departments. Those were two issues Brand championed during his tenure as NCAA president.
Isch, who served as the NCAA's chief financial officer, also plans to talk about finances.
But the overriding theme will be that while Brand made inroads with his focus on the classroom, the NCAA will continue to put academics first.
