Have fun endulging your basketball jones.

Before the NFL owners meetings get underway next week, the league's annual Career Development Symposium gets underway at the same location in Arizona on Thursday.

Former Green Bay Packers general manager Ron Wolf—the team's latest entry into the Pro Football Hall of Fame—is one of the featured speakers as a member of the NFL's Career Development Advisory Committee.

The three-day program will engage aspiring head coach and general manager candidates through presentations, panel discussions, breakout sessions and networking opportunities with owners, club presidents, coaches, general managers and league executives. 

Sixty-eight NFL assistant coaches and front office executives will take part in the event, including Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman, along with former NFL head coach Bill Cowher and many others.

“The NFL constantly strives to make the best better,” said NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent, one of the event's directors. “We have assembled the most talentedindividuals available to our game. Our job is to educate in order to mesh that talent with potential, bringing forward the future of our game.”

Back in the Heartland, former Packers defensive back Charles Woodson wraps up a two-day return to Wisconsin by hosting a wine dinner at The American Club in Kohler, Wis. on behalf of his TwentyFour wine label.

Tickets are required to attend and include a thirty-minute Q&A session with Woodson. More information are available on The American Club's website.

Meanwhile, the pro-day circuit continues with Packers scouts and executives looking at prospects for members of the team's next rookie class.

Events being held at campuses on Thursday include Penn State, Stanford, Missouri, San Diego State, Western Michigan, Hawaii, William and Mary and Maine.

The Packers do not publish which particular pro days they attend, but they're typically represented at a majority.
