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.
