AWSA 3-2-1 Kampaign

We are asking each member to contribute to at least 1 step of the 3-2-1Kampaign.  If you do, our sport and its future will be in better shape than it was yesterday. With your support and promotion, we can brand the 3-2-1Kampaign and have it go viral nationwide until we succeed in accomplishing all three steps (6000k!!!!).

What is the 3-2-1Kampaign?

Step 1: 3k….Bring in 3,000 new AWSA members. #getamemberchallenge

Step 2: 2k….Teach 2,000 people how to ski for the first time. #imawaterskier

Step 3: 1k….Get 1,000 skiers to their first AWSA event. #tryitloveitliveit

The main idea behind the 3-2-1Kampaign is that the customers who fit into any of the 3 categories are already out there. With a little help, your help, simply asking, welcoming and encouraging, these customers can be turned into AWSA members, skiers and competitors.  We are going to use the 3 hashtags above, 1 for each step. So any member that achieves one of the steps should take a picture and use these hashtags or tag @awsa3event on or @amwaterskiassn on or send pics/vids to and they will be posted.
