The Experience Olympia & Beyond Sports Commission has announced that it is now accepting applications for the Sports Commission Advisory Committee.

Community members and businesses involved in supporting sporting events, managing sports venues, and aiding in school athletics are encouraged to apply. Responsibilities of committee members are to identify strategic opportunities, revenue streams, and local businesses who could directly benefit from sports tourism. The committee also guides the sports awards process, advocates for submissions, and selects award recipients.

Members must invest the following time:

  • Four to six meetings per year
  • Attend the Sports Awards (in May)
  • Outreach and nominee submission for the Sports Awards

Applications, which are reviewed and approved by Experience Olympia & Beyond’s board of directors, are due by Sept. 27 at 5 p.m.
