National Conference: Why I Attend – PART III

Jeff Glenn is a veteran when it comes to National Conference, having attended each year to help better his program — the Jeffco Midget Football Association.

Throughout his numerous Conference experiences, Commissioner Glenn has come up with his top benefits that you can get from attending:

  1. The focus on youth football really sets it apart from other conferences
  2. The expansion of the Vendor Village the past few years is great
  3. It gives you the ability to hear from others on how they operate
  4. It keeps us up to date on what’s cutting edge in youth football
  5. You get to meet and network with commissioners from across the country.

Overall, Commissioner Glenn continues to come back to National Conference every year because he leaves with new information to improve his league.

Commissioner Garrett’s Pro-Tips for Future Attendees:

  • Go in with an open mind and be prepared to learn
  • Bring your walking shoes! There will be a lot of walking
  • Take advantage of your opportunity to network with other football minds from across the country
