U.S. OLYMPIC CONGRESS OPEN NASHVILLE MEETING TODAY
Published November 10, 1994
More than 900 representatives of sports organizations are expected to attend the '94 U.S. Olympic Congress opening in Nashville today. The Congress focuses on the Olympic movement and the needs of USOC member organizations. ACOG CEO Billy Payne is to give a progress report on preparations for '96. The 3-day convention includes workshops on sports marketing, sports commissions, sponsorships and sports facility and equipment partnerships.. About 120 exhibitors representing convention centers, sporting goods companies and other retail outlets also are present (Athelia Knight, WASHINGTON POST, 11/10). Yesterday, the Congress staged a "day-long give-and-take on organizing youth sports." It was intended to "encourage grass-roots activists to do more with less," because money is scarce for young athletes (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 11/10). Also on the agenda is a first look at proposals to revise the code of conduct athletes must follow to call themselves Olympians (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 11/10).
