After a successful first year of the Student Snow Ambassador (SSA) program, Galvanic Design and the Campus Rail Jam Tour recently announced its search for new SSA’s for the 2010-11 school year. Organizers are looking for students who are creative, active and social. Additionally, the ideal SSA will be someone who is organized, can properly represent the organization, and is capable and willing to execute their own marketing ideas.

Responsibilities will include event promotions and brand representations. The SSA will create and execute campaigns to spread the buzz about the Campus Rail Jam Tour, industry partners and local event activities.

Other responsibilities may include attending events to distribute promo materials, working with student groups, and marketing at strategic locations such as skate parks or ski resorts.

SSA performance will be measured by providing bi-weekly visual/numerical representation of the rep’s marketing efforts and successes. This will be achieved through photos, videos and social networking outlets.


* Must be constantly immersed in various facets of student life, not only the Campus Rail Jam Tour. Example: Sporting events, local bar/club activities, concerts, student trips, etc.
* Must be currently enrolled as a full-time student with at least a sophomore standing
* A basic knowledge of the action sports industry and culture
* Must be extroverted and outgoing. This position will require extensive interpersonal interactions with university administration, students and local shops.
* Laid-back personality and a willingness to gain hands-on marketing experience.
* Maintain regular correspondence with Galvanic Design and Campus Rail Jam Tour administration.


* The SSA position is not paid, but that doesn’t mean there are no perks. The SSA will receive a set amount of product to help promote the tour. Other benefits include access to industry events, opportunities to network and make connections within the ski and snowboard industry, and great job experience.
* If possible, a SSA can gain college credit.
