1st Annual NIL Conference: Show Me The Money
From NIL Network Founder, Michelle Meyer: For the past 1.5 years that I've been exclusively researching NIL, I made a commitment to accept every meeting request that I received. In doing so, I have built a phenomenal network of incredible people in this new industry. However over the past few months, with public awareness of NIL growing (woohoo!) as well as me accepting the full-time NIL Coordinator role at SDSU, this commitment has gotten harder and harder to uphold. While I absolutely love discussing all things NIL, meeting new people, and educating everyone on NIL, I can no longer meet the ever-growing demand.. Instead, I'm launching a weekly "office hour" of sorts.. Anyone who has a questions about NIL can register for free, jump on the virtual call on Wednesday evenings, and stay for as long as the conversation is beneficial to them. Looking forward to seeing you there!

NIL and Collectives: The Title IX Question
Many LEAD1 athletics departments have embraced a collective approach to college athlete NIL opportunities whereby groups of alumni from institutions pool resources together to create NIL opportunities for college athletes from their specific institutions. In fact, recently it was reported that 54 of these collectives have been created among 42 different FBS institutions. While these collectives seem to be all the rage, questions remain as to whether they potentially trigger Title IX scrutiny. On that front, on Monday, LEAD1 hosted its latest webinar on the intersection between Title IX and NIL.

Title IX and the NIL Marketplace: Subterfuge or Opportunity?
Panelists will discuss how the new NIL marketplace relates to the Title IX promotion, publicity, recruiting, and NIL education obligations of educational institutions. Also addressed will be whether the entities controlled by the institution can be used as subterfuge to evade the educational institution’s Title IX legal obligations and why past and continuing less favorable treatment of female athletes in areas that significantly affect individual brand building will have a profound impact on NIL opportunities for female athletes if they remain unaddressed.
PSAA Presents: A Discussion on Name, Image, and Likeness
One major change that has shifted the landscape of collegiate athletics is the NCAA’s new name, image, and likeness policy that went into effect earlier this year. The Penn State Alumni Association hosted and facilitated a conversation on this topic Oct. 27, so that alumni and all Penn Staters can learn more about name, image, and likeness, its impact on Penn State and our student athletes, how you get involved, and more.
