NC2015 Starts Ambassador Program

Ambassador-Program-NC2015 For the first time, North Carolina 2015 (NC 2015), local host for the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships to be held January 18-25, 2015, in Greensboro, NC, has initiated an official Ambassador Program for the Championships. Borrowing a page from the playbook of local chambers of commerce, NC 2015 has identified volunteers who are knowledgeable and passionate about the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, who have the time and ability to attend local and regional activities and events, who enjoy networking, and who can represent the Championships well to the community.

The program is starting small with its first two Ambassadors, Paul Brown and Rosalee Brewer of Greensboro, both of whom were involved as key volunteers with the 2011 AT&T U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Paul headed the Copy Center activities during the 2011 Championships and is well-known as one of the most energetic and active "retirees" ever.

Rosalee headed the Meeter/Greeter & Access Volunteers for the 2011 U.S. Championships FanFest and Practice areas. She is known across the Triad region for her long-standing work with the Greensboro Grasshoppers minor league baseball team.

"I enjoy attending events, meeting new people, and talking up the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, " said Brown. "It is very rewarding to see them get excited when they begin to realize the caliber of the athletes and the extensive positive impacts of the Championships." Rosalee added, "And it gets even better when we get them motivated enough to purchase tickets!"

The official Ambassador Program is looking to grow selectively in other communities and among the figure skating family. There are incentives for ambassadors ranging from free Championship tickets to official Championships apparel items. If you think you have what it takes to make a great Ambassador for the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, please send an email expressing interest, your involvement with the 2011 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, and a brief bio to the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships Ambassador Program at info@northcarolina2015.com.

Taking the Show on the Road

taking-the-show-onthe-road-NC2015Team members of North Carolina 2015, have been on the road in April and May spreading the word about the U.S. Championships at trade shows and similar gatherings. On Friday, April 26, interns Ryan Maclatchie and William Vita manned the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships booth at the Triad Business Journal's Women in Business Luncheon and trade show at the Embassy Suites Hotel in downtown Winston-Salem, NC where approximately 400 attended the event.

Then on Thursday, May 16, the NC 2015 team stepped up their game at the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce's Annual Business Expo which had over 1900 attendees. William Vita and Ambassador Paul Brown manned the highly visible and attractive 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships exhibit. William and Paul handed out brochures and information, answered questions, and made sure those stopping by the booth got entered for a chance to win free tickets to the Championships and other exciting giveaways.

"We found that about 90% of the almost 2000 attendees were aware of, and very positive about, the great success of the 2011 AT&T U.S. Figure Skating Championships hosted in Greensboro," said Vita. "However, at this point, only a little over 60% of those people were also aware that the Championships are hotel-ribbon returning in 2015. This just underscored the importance of hitting the road and getting the good word out about the 2015 event."
