Continuous improvement

By now much discussion was taking place about moving towards a coordinated accreditation process, a more recognised approach within academia. In June 2005 the NASPE and NASSM leadership met to discuss the proposed direction of SMPRC, including movement toward accreditation. From this meeting came the formation of two task forces: the Accreditation Task Force and the Standards Task Force. These task forces comprised members from each association and were charged with investigating sport management accreditation from a process and policies perspective, as well as a standards perspective.
