Luis Benitez: Innovation in the Outdoor Recreation Industry
As the Director of Colorado’ Office of Outdoor Recreation Industry, Mr. Benitez leads a flourishing outdoor industry; one that has grown to such great heights that it recently earned its place in the calculus of our national gross domestic product. This industry is bigger than just sales of skis and backpacks however. A revolution is taking place, one in which Benitez seeks to transform the outdoor industry into a powerful force for development, conservation, education and wellness. Transforming the industry is no small task. In today’s rapidly changing landscape, where the outdoor recreation industry is driving everything from regional economies to national policies, how do you continue to build and foster a spirit of innovation?
Monday March 5 @ 7pm, Gaylord Hall, Worner Campus Center.

Colorado College will be hosting AFA-NIET, the largest national competitive speech tournament in the country and we are in need of extra judges for the competition. We are seeking for support this prestigious event and are looking for individuals available to judge either Saturday and/or Sunday of April 7-8th. No experience? That’s not a problem! We will provide training sessions the week prior to the event that will get you caught up to speed.

This national tournament will provide a schedule or ‘dance card’ which indicates when and what event you will be judging. This will allow you to come and go throughout the day with minimal wait time. Meals will be provided on both Saturday and Sunday. If you are interested and are able to commit to both days (a one day or half day commitment is fine, too!) AFA will pay $150, otherwise you will be paid $15/ round.

Please email ztoth@coloradocollege.edu for a copy of the Hired Judge form that needs to be filled out and returned to Sarah Hinkle at shinkle@coloradocollege.edu if you are interested in helping out. If you are unable to commit, but know someone who might be willing, please send their contact information to Sarah.
