Mayor Appoints Blue Ribbon Panel on Sports Commissions
(Washington, DC) Mayor Anthony A. Williams announced today a Blue Ribbon Panel on Sports Commissions to review the best practices of sports commissions across the country.
"Part of a world-class city like Washington are world-class sporting events that contribute to the vitality of our region and improve our quality of life," Mayor Williams said.

The 10-member panel's mission is to evaluate the best examples of facility management and sports event marketing by other successful sports commissions.

The members of the panel include: Harold Brazil, Councilmember; Eric Price, Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development; Neil Albert, director, DC Parks and Recreation Department; Jair Lynch, president and CEO, the Jair Lynch Companies; John Hill, CEO, In2Books; Susan O'Malley, president, Washington Sports and Entertainment; Fernando Murias, Managing Partner, Pricewaterhouse Coopers; Dan Knise, president and CEO, Dionis Insurance Holdings, Inc.; John Moag, Moag and Company; John Saboor, executive director, Central Florida Sports Commission, Inc.
