AMCC STUDENTS TRAVEL TO DALLAS FOR NCAA CONVENTION
1/22/13

For the fifth year in a row, student-athletes representing four AMCC institutions took a crash course in "NCAA 101", traveling to the association's annual convention.  It was a whirlwind three days of meetings, roundtables and legislative sessions in Dallas for David Coradi (Pitt-Greensburg), Jalisa Westover (Mount Aloysius College), Jaime Salcedo (Medaille College) and Nicole Zambelli (Penn State Altoona).

"I never realized how the perspective of the student-athlete was valued by NCAA officials," commented Salcedo.  "It seems that they carefully listen to what we have to say, and strongly consider our view points. During the AMCC and Division III meetings I was also able to observe how new ideas are discussed, debated, and voted upon.  Seeing this definitely makes me want to dedicate more time into the SAAC."

The students attended a wide variety of events during their stay.  Thursday started with the Opening Business Session, which included members from all three divisions for a state of the union address by NCAA president Mark Emmert.  Day two included the Division III Issues Forum, a luncheon with the National Div. III SAAC, and the AMCC business meeting.  They attended the Honors Dinner Friday night, where they had a chance to meet the evening's emcee, CBS News correspondent Jack Ford (photo left).  The convention concluded with the Division III legislative session.
