A Glimpse into the career of Event Management

     Indy internship spawned sports management career Who: Susan Baughman, Senior Vice President Indiana Sports Corp./Executive Director 2010 Men’s Final Four People always ask me if I was an athlete growing up. I was what you would call a social athlete — not very good, but loved going to the gym and being around my friends. I was always interested in sports, but wasn’t aware that there were careers in sports management, so it never occurred to me you could make a living doing what I now do.

     I grew up in Mooresville and went to Indiana University and studied journalism, sociology and criminology. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do, but was inter- ested in writing and publishing, so I thought working for a magazine might be a good fit. When I began to interview with magazine and book publishers, the offices were dark, with green-glow- ing LED screens — this was the early 1990s. The offices seemed quiet, and I didn’t feel like I be- longed. By luck, my college counselor told me about an internship at the 1991 World Gymnastics Championships. I had no idea what the event was about, but I was fascinated by the energy of the people working on it. When I heard about what they were planning, I thought: “I have to be part of this.” I was hired and got my first job in an industry I didn’t even know existed.

     I immediately found myself in a world I didn’t know anything about gymnastics rules, international travel, uniform protocols, thousands of volunteers and communicating with people around the world. The job turned out to be the greatest learning experience of my life. I was 21. I had budgets and people to manage. I went from knowing zero about event planning to gaining a broad understanding of how to tackle a major event: and how to organize volunteers, work with deadlines, and think through projects. During that event, I had the chance to work for:

-- Allison Melangton, now the president and CEO of Indianapolis’ 2012 Super Bowl, who showed me the importance of timelines and to pay attention to every detail.

 -- Connie Israel, who showed me the importance of respecting and relishing in the ideas of others. »

-- Jack Swarbrick, now the athletic director at the University of Notre Dame, who showed me there is no limit to what you can do if you harness the energy of the com- munity. »

-- Rick Fuson, chief operating of- ficer of Pacers Sports and Entertainment, who showed me how to inspire and get the best out of people. Their willingness to give an event novice a chance to be a leader; for them to put high expectations and pressure on me, changed my whole life. That experience was my big break.

     My job with the World Gymnastics Championships was fulltime, but temporary. When the event ended, so did my job. What I thought was going to be a one year assignment has turned into a career. When that event was over I worked for USA Gymnastics, or- ganizing national and international televised competitions all over the country.

     Since joining the Indiana Sports Corp. in 1996, I have worked on six international and world championship events, 16 NCAA events, and 21 national or Olympic events. My big break allowed me to work on exciting and notable events, but more importantly gave me the opportunity to learn from the best leaders in the sports industry who work right here in our city. — By Susan Baughman

Not only is the NFL doing something about unruly fans but it seems the NBA is following the NFL'S lead on this issue. Fan safety during games should be high priority.
