LOUDONVILLE, NY -- Siena College Vice President and Director of Athletics John D'Argenio has announced the return of the "Siena Fans Experience Committee." The initiative's goal is to continue to engage and energize Siena fans everywhere -- whether it's at games at the Times Union Center, the ARC, or elsewhere across campus -- by creating a group which will serve as the pulse and voice of Saints' fans, and provide important feedback to the athletic department.
"We want to know how Siena Athletics can better serve its fans," said D'Argenio. "In order to do that, we have to better understand what our fans want and how to engage them. The best way to do that is to seek their input, listen to it, and act on it in a responsible way. Siena is very much about community. By listening to our fans and drawing them closer into our community, we can create an outstanding game day experience for them. Several years ago we did something similar, and the input from fans at that time led to changes in how we promote our games and the in-game experience."
The focus of the Siena Fans Experience Committee will include, but not be limited to: the Siena fan experience before, during, and after games, enhanced athletic department communications with fans, customer service, ticketing, donor support, and branding. The committee will be comprised of roughly a dozen people. The department is looking for representation from alumni, donors, season ticket holders, fans, faculty and staff, and students. Committee membership is on a volunteer basis, and member terms are for two academic years. There is no limit to the number of terms an individual can be selected to serve on the committee. The group will meet quarterly, beginning this October.
