November 25, 2014 — Athletic Business, the resource for athletics, fitness and recreation professionals, is pleased to announce it is partnering with the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at the University of Southern Mississippi to launch Gameday Security™, the only magazine devoted exclusively to safety and security at athletic venues on the professional, collegiate and high school levels, along with municipal recreation facilities and open-access endurance events.
Life-changing events can happen at any time, and when you least expect it. It's common for events early in your personal life to shape you — I won a young author's contest and a big race in elementary school, which ultimately lead to me becoming a writer and runner. But to have it happen on a professional level, nearly 20 years into your career no less, is fairly uncommon. But that's exactly what happened when I attended the 2013 NCS4 Conference in Orlando just two weeks into my tenure at Athletic Business. To say the conference had a profound impact on me would be an understatement. The reality is this — Gameday Security™ exists because of that NCS4 Conference.
