SoB Board Members Needed

The Sons of Ben want you to join the board of elders!  We are now accepting applications/nominations for the following board positions.  Anybody interested may email Tim.Sosar@Sonsofben.com

Philanthropy Director

The Sons of Ben believe in giving back. We want to give back to the City of Chester and its people, we want to help support the growth of soccer in the Delaware Valley, and we want to make an impact in causes that we believe are important to us and our members.
The Philanthropy Director is in charge of planning and executing all SoB charitable events including but not limited to: Help Kick Hunger, Stache Bash, Pints Fur Pets, School Supply Drive and other causes that may change throughout the year. They are also expected to partner and help out with other groups to collect items for Crafts for Cancer and Coats for Cancer. They will need to form connections or continue the partnerships we have already built with local businesses in order to solicit for raffle and auction items. They also have to be able to say no, because a lot of groups and people will come to you to ask for us to help.

Membership Director

The Membership Director is responsible for promoting SoB membership. They are also expected to organize the annual membership campaign and will coordinate and assist with the distribution of membership packages. They will maintain updated membership rolls throughout the year. They will respond to questions related to SoB membership status, as well as any Membership-related issues. Additionally, we are looking for someone who can help us to coordinate our 10 year anniversary efforts

Tailgate Director

The Tailgate Director is responsible for planing and executing tailgates at home games, coordinate game day volunteers, manage food and equipment inventory.  They will also work with the Travel Directors and other Board members to provide food for away games and other special events.


SoB Lot Clean Up
Sunday November 20th, 11:00 am

This Sunday at 11:00am please join us as we clean up the SoB lot.  We will be moving the picnic tables to protect them form the winter elements, clean up the storage container and help clean up the Tifo storage area.  Of course we will provide lunch and beverages.  Email Matt.Gendaszek@sonsofben.com if you can help out.


Membership Renewals 

You will be able to officially renew your SoB soon. When you are renewing your membership, and deciding where to sit, I want to remind you that the River End, is a supporters section. These should not be looked at as the cheap seats, if you are thinking of selecting seats in the River End because it's not as much as other sections, and not because you want to support the team, you don't want to yell, sing, cheer, wave your flag, jump around, smell like smoke, lose your voice...be a supporter, than I implore you, do not choose seats in the River End.


Merch

We have recently partnered with Rockhound Apparel for new merchandise, and you will see new designs coming from Bark Tees as well. If you have a shirt or scarf design, we are always looking for new ideas, so feel free to contact us.
