Patberg has been working directly with Dr. Margaret Venable who was named President of Dalton State College on September 16, 2016. Dalton State is a current member of the NAIA and the Southern States Athletic Conference.

In August 2016, ASC assisted Dalton hire Jon Jaudon, former Associate Athletic Director at Virginia Tech University to serve in the role of Interim Athletic Director.

"By using their [ASC's] knowledge to get to our short list of candidates that fit what we sought in an athletic director, we easily spent half the amount of time that is normally required in a search like this.   Additionally, they enhanced the pool of by bringing several qualified candidates to the finalist list.  Showing that they know talent, two of the individuals that they sought out, and applied to our position, were hired by and are current NCAA Division II AD’s.  Our search finished with securing a quality hire.  If our institution ever needed to conduct a search for an athletic director, we would without question use the services of ASC."
