Letter From The President
As a lifelong sports fan, much of my life has been spent watching, playing, or training on and off the field. Sports have brought me so many of my best memories and moments of joy, but I had always seen them as just a game, as enjoyment. Like many of us here at ISBC, I dreamt of playing for my favorite teams, but as those dreams died out, I came to see that there was still a way to continue to pursue my passion as a career - through the business side of the game.
The Illinois Sports Business Conference has sought to study and learn from the connection between sports and business. Over the past six years, ISBC has grown from a small student organization to become a nationally recognized conference, hosting the best and brightest minds from all over the sports industry. We here at ISBC wish to help those trying to turn their dream of working in sports into a reality. As we continue to indulge into the hottest topics in the wide world of sports, I invite you to join us and discover the vast opportunities to achieve your dreams that await.
