If you’re in the sports industry or in a sport management program, this video explains my experience in finding the right program to be a part of.

After some good experiences and some terrible ones, I joined Women In Sports And Events (WISE). Regardless of gender, it’s an excellent grassroots style program and they treat their members as welcomed guests.

IF you’re in a college, then you’re already in a networking group, but you still can’t go wrong with WISE. But there’s one organization I recommend you not join and it’s the National Sports Marketing Network.

The National Sports Marketing Network does not have — in my experience — a good customer service track record. My story is personal in that I recently was sent an email to come to a member’s only event, but then when i RSVPed — after some hestiation because of the NSMN’s terrible reputation in the SF Bay Area and after a friend encouraged me to do so — I got the weird rebuff email.

When I enquired and expressed my displeasure with the email, the head wrote me back an even nastier email — all for no reason. And also essentially threatened me if I shared the matter with you all.

So I’m doing so.

I trust you don’t want that — go elsewhere. Join Women In Sports Events and other groups. Or start your own group. But I do swear by WISE.
