On October 10, 2013 Buckner attorney Claire Zovko spoke at the first annual Beyond the Bounce Conference at Riviera Hotel South Beach. The conference was a gathering of current and former WNBA players to plan for their professional careers after basketball. Hosted by the Women’s Professional Basketball Alumni Association, the conference provided resources to help facilitate and equip one another for life beyond playing basketball. Over three days, former players and successful women in a variety of professions came to share their experiences. Conference themes included financial advice, franchise opportunities, a career symposium, and a professional skill analysis. Ms. Zovko spoke on protecting your assets and brand, breaking into the sports business industry, and finding work/life balance. Additionally, former NBA players were in attendance as part of Professional Basketball Alumni Association.
