Colorado Springs, CO – USA Archery, the National Governing
Body for the sport of archery, has announced the hiring of two new full-time
staff members: JOAD Coordinator Callie Grieser, and Outreach Assistant Jo
Chouinard. Both positions will be based at the organization’s national office
in Colorado Springs, CO.
These modifications to USA Archery’s Outreach staff are
expected to ensure quality customer service and help the organization to expand
the sport of archery to youth and adult audiences across the United States.
Grieser has a Master of Science in Sport and Exercise
Science, and has previously worked with outdoor sports programs and retailers,
including the City of Spokane Parks and Recreation Department, the University
of Northern Colorado and Cabela’s.
As the full-time JOAD Coordinator, Grieser will play an
instrumental role in helping USA Archery to better support existing Junior
Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) clubs. Grieser will also provide customer
service support to the Adult Archery Achievement and JOAD Xperience programs,
as well as JOAD Camps.
“The hiring of a full time JOAD Coordinator will ensure that
existing JOAD Clubs receive the support they require,” explained Outreach Director
Mary Emmons. “Callie will assist USA Archery in encouraging new club
development and the expansion of archery programs to meet the growing interest
in the sport of archery nationwide.”
As USA Archery’s Outreach Assistant, Chouinard, who has over
fourteen years of experience as an administrative support professional, will
provide administrative and customer support to the communities served by USA
Archery’s Outreach team.
In her new position, Chouinard will offer general customer
service support related to instructor certification and certification renewals.
She will also assist customers with finding instructor course locations,
archery instructors and coaches.
“In hiring Jo, USA Archery is making a stronger commitment
to full-time customer and member services,” Emmons commented. “Jo will play a
key role in making sure that the process for becoming an archery instructor is
simple, efficient and timely.”
Diane Watson, who previously worked as a part-time JOAD
Coordinator, has been re-appointed as a Regional Coordinator for USA Archery.
In her new role, Watson will assist USA Archery in providing instructor
training courses and program training to partner organizations that wish to
implement archery programs.
