The board will be comprised of Craig Birmingham, vice president of finance; Mary Ellen Butler, vice president of special events; Amaury Medrano, vice president of support services; and Joe Spurgeon, vice president of program development. All board members are parents of players expected to be on the 2015-16 varsity roster.
"We're going to have strong teams in every division next year, so we need a strong board to support the coaches and players in all they do. With these board members, there is no doubt at all we have achieved that," said Hauser. "I am very excited to work with and for them. We hope to get an early start on planning for the season, so fundraising and all of the other important support functions are well-organized and less stressful for everyone involved."
It's important to note that while the board sets overall direction for the Three Point Club during the coming year, there are actually more than 200 unique volunteer slots needed during any given season to fulfill the organization's responsibilities. These range from coordinating Adopt-A-Player or Picture Day through running the Summer Barbecue to working a shift in the snack bar or scorekeeping at a game.
Among the goals for the Three Point Club during the coming year are:
- Distribute 2015-16 Game Programs at or before first home game
- Distribute all Spirit Wear and Adopt-A-Player gifts by December 1
- Initiate an additional major fundraising channel through a special event raising $10-15,000 (holiday bazaar, casino night, golf tournament, etc.)
- Add gym--based advertising through limited wall banners and floor placards.
- Begin to monetize TritonBasketball.com through web-based advertising.
- Importantly, leave more money in the Three Point Club account than when the year began.
