official letter to JMU fans, I wish GMU can do the same:
Dear JMU Friend:
Many of you have been following the news reports and other public discussions about some CAA member institutions that have confirmed their decision or are potentially transitioning to other conferences. This ongoing discussion about conference alignment is very important to the CAA, its members and JMU. We recognize that many of you are interested in what this means to JMU, our athletic programs, our student athletes and our fans. Please let me reassure all of you that JMU takes this issue of conference alignment very seriously and is working closely with all of those involved. We are committed to making the best decisions possible for our great university.
As you can imagine, issues like this are fluid, complicated and takes some time to resolve. We will do our best to communicate to our fans at the appropriate time regarding the solution to these issues.
All the best,
Jeffrey T. Bourne
Director of Athletics
