CFP: 3rd Summit on Sport Communication

I wanted to pass along the call for the 4th Summit on Sport Communication, which will take place March 18-20, 2010 in Cleveland. I hope you had a chance to go to one of the first summits, which were terrific opportunities to share sports research and meet new colleagues. Please be aware the deadline is a little earlier this time around (October 1). You can find more information on the Summit here.
