In case you missed it, CSEE has retired. So what does that mean?
For the many Sports ETA members that achieved their CSEE designation, those individuals' designations are now referred to as Sports Tourism Strategist (STS) to more accurately reflect their role in the sports events and tourism industry. Continuing education requirements for those with their STS designation require 4 STS credits each calendar year. Check your Sports ETA profile to see if you fall within this group and if so you'll be able to download your new STS certificate and a toolkit to help guide you through the transition from CSEE to STS.
For those members that were in the process of achieving their CSEE, you are now in the process of achieving your STS. Any previous credits earned, transfer over and count towards your STS designation. You are still required to complete 32 credits to become STS designated, but now you’ll have much more flexibility to complete courses on your terms with a m...
