Newmark will present its findings from the second phase to the Board of Directors, but a schedule has not been given.
Founded in 1953 at the Sedgefield Inn in Greensboro, the league initiated a process in which Newmark evaluated Greensboro, including discussions with more than 100 people from the city, the conference bureau, and the ACC.
“The Board of Directors continues its work on the assessment and will make decisions that are in the long-term interests of the ACC,” said chief executive Vincent E. Price, president of Duke, in a statement. “Greensboro has been our proud home for nearly 70 years and we will be careful to keep it that way for years to come. We continue to appreciate the work of Newmark and Weiberg Consultants on this very important process. “
