Second FCS Summit planned before championship

The second FCS Summit will be held Jan. 6 in conjunction with the 2012 NCAA Division I Championship Game in Frisco.

First held last year, which was attended by approximately 150 guests, the summit is a business gathering of university presidents, athletic administrators and other key stakeholders. The summit focuses on the important issues related to the subdivision, including its championship playoff.

"The FCS Summit is quickly becoming a key event for the subdivision," said Kyle Kallander, commissioner of the Big South Conference and current FCS vice president of the Collegiate Commissioners Association. "With the landscape of intercollegiate athletics rapidly changing, and critical issues such as championship expansion, FCS enhancement, and CEO leadership to discuss, this year���s Summit is a must attend for FCS members."

The FCS championship game will be played Jan. 7, at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco.
