Gabe Sinicropi, Williamsport Crosscutters vice president of marketing and public relations, will be one of three Minor League Baseball executives emceeing the 2012 MiLB Promotional Seminar in Reno, Nev., Oct. 2 to 5.
Sinicropi will emcee the seminar's second full day of activity on Oct. 4, which will include the presentation of the nominees for Minor League Baseball's Golden Bobblehead Award Finalists. Golden Bobbleheads are awarded to teams for the best promotion of the year in each of four specific categories.
In addition to his hosting duties during the seminar, Sinicropi will also lead sessions on sponsorship sales and the importance of on-field hosts and entertainment.
"While I have been a presenter at this seminar a number of times," said Sinicropi, "this will be the first time that I have been asked to emcee. It's truly an honor." Joining him as emcees of this year's event are Todd "Parney" Parnell, vice president and chief operating officer of the Richmond Flying Squirrels and Sean McCall, director of broadcasting for the Lake Elsinore Storm.
"The promotional seminar is one of my favorite weeks of the year," Sinicropi said. "The manner in which Minor League Baseball shares ideas with each other is second to none. It's a great week of sharing our best practices while hearing the same from the other 159 Minor League Baseball teams as well as teams in other sports."
The three-day seminar allows professionals from all across the sports industry to come together to share and exchange ideas on topics ranging from sales to marketing to stadium operations, among others.
Sinicropi plans to update fans on what is happening at the annual event via the Cutters Twitter and Facebook pages.
The Williamsport Crosscutters are an affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Man enters bank's
Bryan Holmes, president and chief operating officer, announces the following appointment at FNB Bank.
Jonathan D. Fellin has been accepted into FNB Bank/Fulton Financial Corp.'s management trainee program. Fellin joined FNB Bank in 2005 as a seasonal employee and moved to a part-time teller while earning his bachelor of arts in degree in economics from Susquehanna University. He is pursuing a bachelor of science degree in accounting as well. During his collegiate career, he was involved in a number of different clubs, organizations, and honorary associations. Active in the local community, Fellin volunteers his time to serve as a firefighter with the East End Fire Co. and is a member of the Montour County Fire Prevention Committee.
"We are pleased to involve Jonathan in our management training program. This twelve to eighteen month program will equip him with the tools necessary to work within any area of our organization. This training, plus his passion for banking should equate to a great opportunity for both Jonathan and the bank," Holmes said.
Kelly Little, clerk typist, has been named the state Department of Transportation district office Employee of the Month for October 2012.
Little is the "gal Friday" for the district's press officer and the district's safety coordinator, a news release said. Earlier this year she was tapped to provide assistance in human resources in the payroll unit, as well.
Little, the release said, provides strong clerical and backup support to the district press office. She has her routine duties, which she performs admirably, but she also is occasionally assigned duties that go well above and beyond her normal tasks, which she willingly takes on and performs well.
Little is enthusiastic about learning new information and tasks within the safety department; she can be counted on to perform all assigned tasks completely, with little supervision. She always has a positive attitude when interacting with the county clerks and district employees. Little will stop what she is working on to ensure the county clerks have the information and support to complete accident/injury packets. She always puts forth the extra effort to insure that they are completed on-time and accurately.
Little is now also an integral part of the payroll unit on payday Fridays and Mondays. She helps input payrolls into our SAP system as well as M-805 entries for vehicles. She was very quick to pick up the training.
She is always willing to help out wherever and whenever she can, according to the release. She has a great attitude and does whatever it takes to get the job done. Her attention to detail and strong desire to help her fellow employees and accurately complete all tasks make her an asset to the district, the press office, the HR unit and the safety office.
Little, a 4-year PennDOT employee, lives in Hughesville with her son, Austin.
