The NCAA has named 10 metropolitan areas as finalists for its national offices, which are currently located in Overland Park, KS. Cities to make the final cut include: Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Orlando, Phoenix and San Antonio. Each community has until November 7 to fill out a request for proposal addressing "key criteria" posed by a group appointed by the NCAA Executive Committee. NCAA Exec Dir Cedric Dempsey said the committee will focus on: office space, meeting and conference facilities, opportunities to showcase the Hall of Champions, and ability to host selected championships. A final decision comes in Spring '97. The NCAA's lease on its current site expires in 2000 and notice must be given by November '98 of intention to move (NCAA).
