We Want You!

Posted by on Dec 19, 2016 in NAH, NAHBPC, WHBPC

With the NAH coordinating two majors in 2017, we feel it best to do a public call for volunteers to assist the real labor of fundraising and planning the NAHBPC and WHBPC.  The working group will meet online every two-three weeks to divide tasks and provide status updates.  The working group will be facilitated by me, and on occasion other members of the NAH board will join in the meetings to provide additional input if needed.  The work of this group will begin before the announcement of the tournament hosts.  This team will be the glue that works between the NAH and host clubs.

The group’s composition will be:

– Alias Tagami, NAH President
– NAH volunteer
– NAH volunteer
– NAHBPC host club rep
– NAHBPC host club rep
– WHBPC host club rep
– WHBPC host club rep

The tasks the group will undertake will be establishing 2017 sponsors, coordinating event logistics with the host club’s planning team (such as on-site amenities), marketing & media creation, and providing player travel guidance (suggested international airports, available lodging, local food options, and other needs).  Host club representatives will join the group as the host clubs are announced.  NAH volunteers may be players, retired players, or fans/supporters who are motivated individuals with strong communication skills and a dedication to make 2017 the best year ever for bike polo!  Experience in planning and hosting tournaments is preferred, but any experience with any kind of event planning or fundraising would be a major contribution to our efforts.

If you are interested in joining the team, please email me (alias@nahardcourt.com) with a brief summary of your skills and experience by 6pm EST January 1st.  No need for anything like a resume, just tell me about yourself and experience.  If you’re interested and would like to know more about what the commitments of the group will be, also feel free to send me an email, and we can chat about what kind of effort will be needed.  I believe that 2017 will be a year of polo revival!  Our greatest days are ahead of us.  Our best shots!  Our best heckles!  Our best friends!  This is your opportunity to make this year special for a community you love!

Cheers,

~Alias Seiichi Tagami
