We Will Get Through This Together!


NACMA Launches RESILIENCE to provide support for members during the unique challenges created by the pandemic.

With the unprecedented challenges that we all continue to face – including budget cuts and reduction in workforce, a host of logistical and operational hurdles, as well as the personal and mental health impacts brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic – NACMA is launching this page to serve as a hub in support of its members and the collegiate athletics community.

"The coolest part of our industry is that, even though our schools compete so fiercely on the field, we collaborate and try to help support each other off the field," said Michael Thompson, 2020-21 NACMA President and Texas A&M Deputy AD. "This need for our collegiate marketing community to pull together and look after each other is even more critical as we navigate the obstacles presented by this year."

This site is designed to offer resources, inspiration, and a needed reminder of the need to look out for each other -- and yourself.
