Company Ambassador Appreciation Night
7:10 p.m. vs. Seattle Mariners
Comerica Park, Detroit

If you are a current SAE Detroit Section Company Ambassador, you and a guest are invited to attend the Detroit Tigers vs. Seattle Mariners baseball game. The first 25 Company Ambassadors who register will receive two complimentary tickets. Each ticket includes a hot dog, bag of chips, and a small drink. This is a great opportunity to network and enjoy a night out.

What is a Company Ambassador?
Company Ambassadors are an integral part of SAE Detroit Section. They are the link between the Section and companies in the automotive industry. Ambassadors are responsible for keeping their colleagues and peers abreast of SAE Detroit Section events, resources, volunteer opportunities, SAE membership, and more. The Section provides Company Ambassadors with everything they need to communicate with their colleagues (email blasts, flyers, etc.). It's a simple role that does not require a lot of time, but the benefits are extremely rewarding (and it looks good on your resume).

This is a small token of our appreciation for helping us promote membership, programs, and events to your company and colleagues. Please continue to help serve your company and SAE Detroit Section.

Important Note: Registration closes Wednesday, June 15 at 4:00 p.m. SAE Detroit Section is not responsible for lost or stolen tickets. Alcoholic beverages are neither supplied nor purchased by SAE Detroit Section. SAE advises attendees to drink responsibly and exercise good judgement at SAE events.
