The BDS Agency President Brian D. Stanchak was a speaker at the Emerging Administrators Academy (Emerging AD) at Clayton State University in Morrow, GA from July 10th through the 12th. The conference, founded by Clayton State Director of Athletics Tim Duncan, was developed to focus on the skills current and emerging administrators will need to advance their careers.

Having seen the intercollegiate sports industry from the variety of perspectives as an AD, coach, and now agent, Stanchak was able to offer unique insight into the job search process.

The panel consisted of Dr. Derrick Gragg (Vice President & Director of Athletics, University of Tulsa), Kim Record (Director of Athletics, University of North Carolina, Greensboro), and Lisa Sweany (Director of Athletics, Armstrong State University.
