Athlete Network Launches National Athletics Advisory Board To Drive Innovation

Athlete Network, the leading athlete engagement solution for college athletics, has launched the National Athletics Advisory Board. The newly formed Advisory Board will be instrumental in providing thought leadership and feedback for the development of UNITE software. 

"After strategically selecting and inviting each member, this board of peers represents experience and diversity on many levels, including organization, division, expertise, and vision for their programs. We are honored to partner with each board member as well as their organization or athletic department to further expand their athlete network and impact current and alumni student-athletes."
