To the Modern Pentathlon community:
It is a great honor to serve as your new CEO. This is a wonderful sport and I look forward to growing it with you. The Board of Directors has done a fantastic job of creating structure and implementing policies and procedures to get us to where we are today. Please join me in giving them a well-deserved "Thank You" for their hard work and dedication.
Currently I am in a temporary office while our new location is renovated. The national office will be located on the Olympic Training Center in the National Sports Building. The address is USA Pentathlon, 1 Olympic Plaza, Colorado Springs, CO 80909. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. A new phone and fax number will be assigned in the next week. I thank you for your patience and understanding while we get key services established.
We have an ambitious agenda ahead of us and I look forward to working with you to bring Pentathlon to new levels of success. I will be reaching out to you in the near future to seek volunteers to assist in participating in various committees and task forces. Opportunities for service are enormous and I have listed only a few which include: fundraising, talent identification, marketing, club, coach and athlete development, local and national competitions, your stories for the newsletter and website, etc.
Again, it is a pleasure to serve you and the Modern Pentathlon community. I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable 4th of July holiday weekend.
