SEC announces league's Spring Meetings will not be held in Destin this year
The biggest loser following the latest announcement from the Southeastern Conference?
That may turn out to be Paul Finebaum.
The league just announced its annual Spring Meetings will not be held in Destin this year, meaning Finebaum and his radio show won’t be setting up from the beach as has been a tradition in recent years on the SEC Network.
Instead of holding its traditional Spring Meetings, the SEC plans to hold a mix of smaller in-person meetings and virtual conferences to accomplish this year’s event.
SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey has issued the following statement regarding the league’s decision:
“The SEC Spring Meetings provide an opportunity to celebrate our achievements, plan for the future and focus on our mission to serve people through our universities. We have learned a lot in the last year including how to conduct effective meetings through technology. We believe a combination of smaller in-person meetings on varying dates and continuing use of virtual meeting technology is more appropriate given the current circumstances than a multi-day indoor conference room gathering.”
