MRDA Creates Sponsorship Committee and Events Coordinator Position

For Immediate Release

April 9, 2013-The Men’s Roller Derby Association announced the development of the Event Coordinator position. The purpose of this position is to coordinate MRDA events such as tournaments, meetings, invitationals, and clinics. The coordinator will confirm MRDA events and prepare a calendar of MRDA events. For each event, the coordinator will assist with communications regarding sponsorship, finances, sanctioning, and officiating and share general information with the entire membership.

Emily “EmPower” Anderson of Minnesota Men’s Roller Derby was approved by the MRDA Board of Directors to serve as Event Coordinator. EmPower began officiating in September 2008 and became Head Referee for Minnesota Men’s Roller derby in 2012. Outside of roller derby, EmPower works in advertising, managing interactive media releases. Prior to roller derby, her event planning skills were sharpened in theater and music production where she served as a stage and venue manager. EmPower brings a lot of knowledge and experience to the Event Coordinator position. Please help MRDA in welcoming her to this new role.

MRDA also announced the creation of the Sponsorship Committee. The main objective of the committee will be to seek, attract, and secure new sponsors for MRDA. They will achieve this goal by creating sponsorship packages based on what MRDA has to offer. The committee will also help to advise PR and Marketing on ways to maximize their offerings to attract more sponsors. The committee will be headed by Screecharound of the St. Louis GateKeepers. Screecharound was instrumental in the successful organization and running of the 2012 MRDA Championships. The Sponsorship Committee will report to the Executive Director of Public Relations.
