Volunteer Committees

Airport Hospitality

These committee members will be the first impression that players and guests see when they arrive on the Coast.  The committee will work closely with the Transportation Committee in arranging delivery of courtesy cars, will greet players and guests upon arrival and operate the information desk at the airport.  May require some early mornings and late evenings based on incoming flights.

 

Access Control

The Access Control Committee works in conjunction with the Corporate Hospitality Committee and the contracted security company to ensure tournament guests have the proper credentials to enter various restricted areas.  Those with good “customer service” skills will make excellent committee members.
