The Communications & Marketing Committee is challenged on two fronts.
  • The committee is constantly reimagining fan engagement offerings that communicate alcohol responsibility with the goal of generating greater awareness and participation in by sports and entertainment fans. At the same time, the committee provides a robust toolkit of responsibility activation elements for use by venue operators and member organizations alike.
  • The committee helps tell the TEAM Coalition story by developing and implementing a communications plan and brand standards, improving TEAM’s online presence and enhancing the organization’s relationship with the media. Oversight by this committee includes editorial decisions for the monthly newsletter.
The Membership Committee is focused on the value proposition for members, current and future.

This committee listens to what our members and the industry say they need to ensure that alcohol is served and consumed responsibly in and around all sports and entertainment facilities nationwide. Then the committee works with members and subject matter experts to fill those requests for lessons learned, best practices, technology solutions and training techniques to minimize risk and maximize positive fan behavior.
