UTC Athletics Seek Volunteers For Mocs' Fan Council

Wednesday, May 27, 2020

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Department of Athletics is seeking volunteers for the Mocs' Fan Council.  The current six-person committee is looking to add six new members for two-year terms.

Created by current Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Mark Wharton, the Fan Council is entering its third year.  The group exists to provide feedback and guidance in the areas of External Operations, as it relates to fan experience and gameday enhancements.  The goal is to help improve engagement with the community and constituencies of all Mocs athletics programs.
 
A list of the current members of the Fan Council is available here. 
 
"The Fan Council is an extremely valuable group of constituents who help us make decisions concerning all areas of external operations," stated Wharton.

"We have gained valuable insight from the first two years of the council and we expect that to continue in the future."
Membership in the fan council is comprised of a diverse group that has included students, staff, alumni, donors, ticket holders, and community members.  This allows for a representation of varying perspectives.
 
During the weekday meetings, the Fan Council is provided with current marketing plans, budget information and a "behind the scenes" look at the overall department. Members provide opinions and feedback as to how Chattanooga Athletics can continue to grow and achieve maximum success across various areas of focus.
 
To be considered for the Chattanooga Mocs Fan Council, fill out the questionnaire by clicking here, or the link at the top of the page.  For questions or more information, contact UTC's Senior Associate Athletics Director for External Operations Andrew Horton (Andrew-Horton@utc.edu – 423-425-5285).
 
The deadline to apply for consideration as a member of the Fan Council is June 21.  A complete layout of the Fan Council guidelines, meeting format and important dates are
