Scott Brickman, EVO/COO of the Swarm Collective NIL presented on that organization's mission and developments in "Name, Image, Likeness" contracts, on the rise after recent NCAA regulation changes regarding college sport player compensations.

Continuing pandemic concerns now look to Christmas, restricting or even cancelling many traditional festive events—like Clarinda, Iowa’s annual “Santa House."
When CBI Member PCSB Bank heard the news, the team was crushed for the kids and devised a way to provide Virtual Santa visits via its video banking platform (by POPi/o)—now available at no cost to the entire community, via web/mobile app. PCSB is excited to deliver some holiday cheer straight to families’ living rooms and has loved witnessing the joy in the kids’ faces so far!
