Members include national and local sponsors, fans and media
SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today the new Florida Panthers Blueprint Advisory Board made up of season seat owners, premium seat holders, national and local sponsors, and media members that will help advise General Manager Dale Tallon and President & COO Michael Yormark on the overall direction of the Panthers organization.
The 12 members of this exclusive board will be released to the public on March 9 with the first meeting tentatively scheduled for mid-April.
“This Board has been created because Michael and I both feel strongly that direct feedback from this diverse but knowledgeable group of individuals can help make us better as an organization and help us achieve our goals,” Tallon said. “I personally find it helpful to interact with our constituents in an environment that is conducive to making an honest appraisal of our franchise – where we are, where we’re headed, and how we are going to get there.”
Members of the Board were chosen based on their diverse personal and professional backgrounds, knowledge of the Panthers franchise and the sports and entertainment industry in general, and ability to effectively communicate their ideas and opinions about improving the Panthers team and it’s brand as a whole.
The Board will meet quarterly with Tallon and Yormark, at off-site South Florida locations, to conduct an open forum and honest dialogue about every aspect of the Florida Panthers organization and Dale’s Blueprint for success including: the Panthers team and hockey operations department, the Panthers local, regional and national brand recognition, the BankAtlantic Center experience, price structures, marketing campaigns, community outreach, charitable initiatives, youth hockey development, fan demographics, and more.
All Florida Panthers supporters will have the opportunity to contact the Blueprint Advisory Board via secure e-mail to make sure all of their opinions, thoughts, and priorities are accurately represented during Board meetings and communications.
