Volunteer Recruitment Begins for 2010 Games



LEXINGTON, KY— The World Games 2010 Foundation today announced it is launching a volunteer recruitment Web Site, through the online services of The Registration System, to manage the thousands of volunteers needed for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.

 

Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer can log on to www.feigames2010.org and click on “Volunteer Information” in the “Quick Links” box, to register and receive more information about volunteer opportunities and benefits. Volunteers are needed before, during, and immediately after the Games. Interested volunteers must also fill out a profile detailing when and how they could serve.

 

“With more than two years until the 2010 Games, we have already had countless requests for volunteer information,” said Cathy Rutter, Director of Community and Volunteer Relations. “The Registration System’s recruitment site is going to allow the Foundation to both communicate with our volunteers, and give us access to volunteers that we need right now—not just for the 16 days of competition in 2010.”

 

 “TRS, The Registration System, cuts large events into manageable pieces. It is an online solution we developed to solve the common challenges faced by event planners like the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games,” said Florence May, President of Simply Hospitality.  “We provide an event mission control for our clients, including registration, e-mail communications, payment processing, and management report packages specifically for large and mid-sized sporting events, festivals and conferences.”

 

All volunteers will be required to go through an orientation and training program before they can begin to serve with the Foundation. Volunteers will receive a variety of benefits for their efforts, including official 2010 Games apparel, volunteer credentials, and general admissions tickets.

 

“We plan to give our volunteers special recognition during the Games for their efforts,” stated Rutter. “We are depending on our volunteers to help make the Games a success—and that it’s going to be both hard work and an incredible experience. At the end of the Games, we hope our volunteers walk away with the feeling that they had an impact on the Games’ success.”

 

Rutter said nearly 17,000 people have already registered through the Games’ informational Web Site, www.feigames2010.org.  Those people will not have to re-register, but will receive an email asking for an update on their profile information through the new recruitment system.

 

TRS was custom-built in 2001 to support the Men’s and Women’s NCAA ® Final Four, the American Association of Museums and the National League of Cities.  TRS is now used for more than 250 North American events each year.  Simply Hospitality clients include the Indy 500 Festival, Chick-fil-A Bowl, Ottawa Bluesfest, FORD Model T Centennial, USA Track & Field Olympic Trials and the VA Golden Age Games.

 

The Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, to be held at the Kentucky Horse Park September 25-October 10, 2010, are the world championships of the eight equestrian disciplines recognized by the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI), and are held every four years.  The Games have never before been held outside of Europe; nor have all eight disciplines ever previously been held together at a single site— both firsts that will be achieved at the Kentucky Horse Park. The 2010 Games are expected to have a statewide economic impact of $150 million. It is anticipated that more than 600,000 spectators will attend the 16-day competition.
