March Madness Message from ACSP Membership Manager

Greetings, ACSP Members and Member Schools, and Happy March!

Many of our member schools along with individual members and other institutions of higher learning celebrate "March Madness." Although many of your present and past schools may not have NCAA Basketball teams participating in the tournament, we are going to have a "March Madness" of our own.

The 2018 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament begins Tuesday, March 13 and ends Monday, April 2, but before you print and fill out those brackets ---- we have a MUCH MORE PRESSING deadline reminder from us here at ACSP.

There are exactly 7 DAYS (one week!) until the final submission deadline for 2018 abstracts.

So, BEFORE you fill out the bracket, BEFORE you pack up for Spring Break, and perhaps BEFORE even studying for those midterms – take a moment to plan your timeline for submission with our help here.

If you need a password reset, assistance with membership renewal, or have any other questions – please email me at: or call 850-385-2054. We are here to help you!

Please help us spread the word in the spirit of healthy competition! Remind your colleagues and fellow students that TIME IS RUNNING OUT. Know that the larger our pool of abstracts, the stronger and more reputable we are as an association. With your help, I hope to make this process one of the most seamless for our members and your ACSP team as possible!

Please don’t wait until the last minute, and March On!
