RECRUIT, RETAIN, REWARD -THESE ARE WHAT EACH DUKE CLUB REP LIVES BY!

Rep Kickoff 2010 was not your average Duke Club get-together.  Duke Club staff along with Duke Club Reps from around the state gathered in Harrisonburg on January 16 & 17, 2010 to celebrate their hard work and to plan for the future of James Madison University Athletics.

Friday evening, a catered social and awards reception was held at JMU's Festival Conference and Student Center to congratulate all Duke Club Reps for their efforts in 2009.  Those Reps who went above and beyond the call of duty were recognized by Director of Athletics Development, David Biancamano, and Deputy Director of Athletics, Geoff Polglase.  "This weekend was a celebration of the hard work put forth in 2009.  On behalf of the Duke Club, I look forward to reaching new goals in the upcoming year and this would not be possible without our dedicated Duke Club Reps" David Biancamano added to the end of the Duke Club Rep Kickoff weekend.   

On Saturday, Duke Club Rep Training kicked off with breakfast in the Montpelier Room in the beautiful new East Campus Dining Hall.  The group gathered to learn about the "Rules to Rep By."  Matt Tremonte, '05 of the NOVA/DC Chapter, led a roundtable discussion of recruiting strategies to aid Reps in generating new donations toward JMU's student-athlete scholarships as well as the general operating budget.  Finally, Ben Burbic of the Hampton Roads Chapter added his expertise in how to get parents of JMU students involved with their child's college education, as well as enjoying the variety of competitive athletic events the Dukes have to offer.  After the valuable brainstorming session in the morning, the Duke Club Hospitality room was open early for the convenience of all the Reps to enjoy themselves before watching the Dukes take on George Mason in front a crowd of over 5,000.

We hope to see you next year in Harrisonburg for Rep Kickoff 2011!

Special thanks to Aramark for providing wonderful food throughout the weekend.
