The Sports Business & Leadership Association (“SBLA”) is proud to announce the kickoff of its Colorado Chapter. The SBLA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization dedicated to the dual roles of being an affinity group for professionals working in the sports business industry and to raising funds to send underprivileged children to sports camps. The SBLA was founded in Florida but is now expanding into other markets, including Colorado, Chicago and Boston. The SBLA’s mission and vision statements are attached.

It is part of the SBLA’s mission for each chapter to host networking/educational events quarterly. The Colorado Chapter of the SBLA will be hosting its first networking/education event on December 17, 2015, at the Pepsi Center in conjunction with a Colorado Avalanche hockey game. Please see the invite below and I look forward to seeing you!
