IAVM and TEAM Coalition

INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VENUE MANAGERS

IAVM is a long-time member of TEAM Coalition. The two organizations have worked together to bring TEAM training and responsible fan programs (like designated driver) to a wider array of venues. IAVM members receive a discount on TEAM Training manuals and trainer certification registration.

On June 25, 2019 at 3:00 PM EST, IAVM will host a webinar on the topic of introducing alcohol service. Alcohol service has been trending in NCAA sports venues as well as performing arts centers for the last five years. TEAM Coalition has been an integral partner for many universities as they decide to offer alcohol through general concessions, including Ohio State, the University of Texas, KU and Oregon.

Please mark your calendar for 6/25/2019 at 3:00 PM EST  if your facility is considering turning on the taps or expanding your alcohol service. You’ll learn from those who have already done it, how to do it best!

ALCOHOL MANAGEMENT REASONABLE EFFORTS

INSTRUCTOR DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM (IDP) WORKSHOPS

Become a certified TEAM trainer by attending an Instructor Development Program (IDP) workshop. At the end of the 2-day training and after passing the certification exam, facility managers will be certified to teach the TEAM alcohol management training program and certify their own employees in the program. Trainer certification is good for two years. Recertification is available online as long as trainers have conducted four sessions or certified 80 employees before their certification expires.

IAVM members pay $550 to register, savings of $150 on the standard registration fee.

EMPLOYEE CERTIFICATION

TEAM training for facility employees is divided into two levels.

Level 1 encourages various departments to unify and work together as a team. Following the 2-hour course, there is a 20-question certification test for all employees.

Level 2 is an hour-long continuation of Level 1 training. It focuses on blood alcohol levels, checking IDs and serving guidelines. Level 2 has a 30-question certification test.

In order to certify your employees, you must purchase one manual for each employee to use during the training session. Each manual includes one certification exam. Regardless of the Level completed, upon passing the test, employees will receive a certification card, thereby recognizing every employee as a valuable asset who has achieved a greater comprehension of alcohol management techniques. Employee certification is good for three years.

Certification cards can be sent as digital PDF copies or hard copies. IAVM members pay $13 per employee for printed certification cards or $12 per manual for electronic certification cards, savings of $1 per manual on the standard manual prices.

MARKETING CAMPAIGNS

RESPONSIBILITY HAS ITS REWARDS

  • MLB MLB Sweepstakes
  • MLS MLS Sweepstakes
  • NASCAR NASCAR Sweepstakes
  • NBA NBA Sweepstakes
  • NFL NFL Sweepstakes
  • NHL NHL Sweepstakes

The Responsibility Has Its Rewards (RHIR) sweepstakes is TEAM Coalition’s longest-running program to recognize fans for having a plan to avoid drunk driving. Fans who pledge to be a designated driver or have a plan to get home safely are entered for a chance to win tickets or a trip to the leagues’ championship games or premier events.

TEAM Coalition is willing and eager to spread the RHIR message. TEAM member organizations are incorporating the Responsibility Has Its Rewards program in more and more events, like the Indianapolis 500 with MillerCoors and boxing events with Constellation Brands.

If you are interested in partnering with TEAM Coalition to introduce the Responsibility Has Its Rewards sweepstakes – or expand upon an existing program to reward your guests for making responsible decisions with alcohol – please contact us today!

TEAM UP 2 WIN!

TEAM Up 2 Win! is a unique program that runs from mid-February to mid-March each year. TEAM Up 2 Win! is an online registration sweepstakes encouraging college basketball fans to pledge to prevent drunk driving for a chance to win a trip to either the NCAA Men’s or Women’s Final Four and Championship games.

While the TEAM Up 2 Win! sweepstakes prize is an NCAA event, the program is open for any and all TEAM Coalition members (including IAVM members) to support. Creative elements follow the style guides for each championship event. TEAM Coalition asks that IAVM members share the TEAM Up 2 Win! message with a link to the registration page through social media, website and email communications with your audiences.

Please share your TEAM Up 2 Win! questions or comments. And please help us promote this program!

RAISE ONE MILLION ARMS

Each year in April (Alcohol Responsibility Month) and December (Drunk Driving Prevention Month), TEAM Coalition runs the Raise One Million ARMs Against Drunk Driving sweepstakes.

TEAM Coalition and IAVM ask IAVM members to support the campaign by making the pledge and sharing the campaign with your employees, partners and guests. Through website and social media graphics and sample messages for PA announcements, video board messages and social media posts, you can help reach the goal of 1,000,000 pledges to prevent drunk driving.

From all the pledges received in December 2019 and April 2020, one randomly selected winner will receive the Raise One Million ARMs campaign grand prize – a trip for two to the 2020 ESPY awards. So spread the word, make the pledge today and enter for a chance to win, because Responsibility Has Its Rewards!
