I've been in Houston this week for the Sports Marketing Association Conference. I'm here with another co-worker of mine from NASCAR, she and I jointly run the NASCAR college programs. The most exciting thing about this conference is that this year it was hosted by Texas A&M so I've been able to hang out with some of my fellow classmates and spend some time with my teachers.
NASCAR sponsored a social last night at Minute Maid Park and it was really neat because it overlooked the baseball field.
I was also asked to speak on the Super Panel about diversity in sports marketing. The panel included myeslf, the director of The Gay Games, and the director of ticket sales for the Houston Dyamo. I felt honored to have been asked to speak on this panel and it was an awesome experience to share what NASCAR is doing in regards to diversity.
This is the only picture I have of the panel...wish I had a better one!
The conference was held by minute maid park and I was able to get some cool shots. I'm glad I've been able to be "home" for a few days.
