Here is what attendees have said about the National Conference in Sales Management (NCSM)
"In one word, NCSM is OUTSTANDING. From interesting research presentations and teaching sessions to incredible fellowship, the NCSM culture is inviting, encouraging, and fun. Additionally, the support provided to doctoral students is amazing and unlike that of any other conference I have attended. Next year's NCSM is already on my calendar!" Rebecca Dingus Doctoral Student Kent State University
"A great networking event to share academic achievements and strategies to teach sales management." Dr Michael Marck, Glasgow, Scotland.
"As a first year doctoral student in the area of sales research, I found the meeting extremely beneficial and fun. The faculty and other student's were very open to sharing ideas, answering just about any question you could imagine, and showed genuine interest in helping a doctoral student succeed. The sessions were very practical yet supported by great research. This is a great conference for anyone interested in sales research, sales management, and for picking up some great ideas and methods for the classroom." John F. Riggs, Doctoral Student,
Kennesaw State University.
"NCSM is the best conference for networking in sales. It is a must attend for anyone researching and teaching selling. I always come away with new ideas for research. I especially enjoy meeting new friends and renewing old relationships among my colleagues." Doug Amyx, Louisiana Tech University
"I have NCSM to thank for exposing me to a great group of leading researchers, teachers and practitioners that continue to enhance my development year after year. It is an outstanding opportunity and welcoming environment for all of academia, regardless of experience or credential." Nathaniel N. Hartmann, Pudue University
"It's like a great get-together with sales folks! Good for meeting with sales researchers all over the world and exchanging ideas!" Fred Yim.
