About our volunteers
The mission of the Bloomington-Normal Area Sports Commission is to promote BN as a world class sporting event destination, and to solicit and support sports activities and events which stimulate our local economy, enhance the area’s image, provide outstanding entertainment and participatory opportunities, and contribute to our community’s quality of life.
