Required fields are marked * As of Thursday morning, the City Council had reported no action after a closed session meeting on Tuesday that included discussion on allowing the College Football Playoff (CFP) to use the Rose Bowl Game name for a semi-final championship game to be played in Texas on New Year’s Day.According to the closed session agenda, a discussion on the “price and terms of payments” with City Manager Steve Mermell and Tournament of Roses CEO David Eads was scheduled to take place.The CFP announced on Saturday night that the game between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Notre Dame had been moved.On Sunday, news outlets reported that the game would still be called the Rose Bowl Game, even though that privilege can only be granted by the City Council. The Council, however, had not yet met to consider the matter.“The College Football Playoff Management Committee and Tournament of Roses have mutually agreed that, given the growing number of COVID-19 cases in Southern California, the CFP semifinal game previously scheduled to be played at the Rose Bowl Stadium will now be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX,” according a statement issued by the CFP.Local residents implored the council to not allow the CFP to use the name Rose Bowl Game for the upcoming game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.“Please do not allow the College Football Playoff game in Texas to use the Rose Bowl name,” wrote Pasadena Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Paul Little in correspondence to the City Council.“The name and the game are Pasadena’s identity to the world. Allowing it to be used for a game in Texas would diminish the name and the value of the event. The Rose Bowl name is part of Pasadena’s brand and should be protected and cherished by the City and the Tournament. You betray Pasadena, its residents and our history to allow the Rose Bowl name to be used for a game in Texas,” wrote Little, a former Pasadena City Councilmember.City officials declined to comment on the issue before the meeting. According to the Ralph M. Brown Act, the state’s open meeting law, the city must publicly report any action taken in closed session. However, reporting may be deferred under certain circumstances, including lawsuit settlements and monetary agreements, usually because legal action is often contingent upon approval and signatures by another party.Online, Texas residents and elected officials, including U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, gloated over the decision to move the game.“Now football is fleeing California,” Cruz posted on Twitter.The CFP moved the semifinal game from the historic stadium to Arlington due to a California state order that bans fans and family members of players from viewing sporting events in person.“Rose Bowl and Rose Bowl Game are the two most valuable names and brands in our city. And both are among the top sports/venue brands in the U.S. The Rose Bowl is also internationally recognized with an enduring halo effect on the image of Pasadena,” wrote Wayne Hunt.“A branding appraisal would likely place a value on these famous brands in the millions of dollars. If we allow a Rose Bowl Game to be played in Texas we essentially say that we don’t value the exclusivity of the Rose Bowl and even the unique qualities of Pasadena,” Hunt continued.“I don’t think we would tolerate our Rose Parade to take place in Dallas, so don’t allow our cherished Rose Bowl brands to be exported and diminished either,” Hunt wrote. ““Yes, move this year’s game, but don’t let them profit from and diminish our beloved and valuable brands by literally exporting the Rose Bowl to Texas.” Business News Government No Action Reported on Special Closed Session Meeting on Rose Bowl Game By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Wednesday, December 23, 2020 | 3:35 pm More Cool Stuff EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website 34 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Members and employees who understand, believe in, and can live out your brand and your mission are pure gold. Part of your job as a marketer is to attract these people and make sure they catch the CU bug.It’s not just an HR or membership thing; it’s being a good brand steward.Wear your mission on your sleeveMillennials aren’t kids anymore – their average age is 30, so they’re out of college, are already experienced professionals and leaders, and many have families. And Gen Z is smarter with their money, already working, saving, and primed to become more influential than Millennials.Even better? Millennials want to work for a company with a purpose. Gen Z is right there with them, and are even more attracted to a mission they can believe in.That’s great for mission-focused places like credit unions. (And making the world a better place is also why we focus on credit unions.)Make sure you’re marketing your brand in places they’ll see, with a real, substantive message that goes beyond rates and fees.Teach your brandYou can’t just rely on osmosis to teach new employees what they need to know; you have to teach it. It takes service training focused on your brand and your brand story, and on exactly what makes your CU unique and authentic.Every employee needs to understand how to solve problems “the ABCFCU way”, and that they play an important role with every decision and action, even if they’re not member-facing.Cultivate cultureYep, workplace culture is part of Marketing’s job too. Every CU is different, so make sure you can feel the pulse of your credit union’s unique culture and do what it takes to amplify the good stuff.Does your crowd lean more towards pizza parties as a reward for reaching a goal, or do they get passionate about community causes? Are people allowed to try new things and does everyone get the chance to be heard?Devote time and resources to internal communicationIn the rush to get web graphics, video, radio, print, email, and all the rest produced, remember that you need to spend the time, attention, and budget to ensure your employees succeed. This could take many different forms, such as a “what’s next” newsletter, a “cheat sheet” for account transfers, or training on specific service cues.Above all, give staff the reasons and the opportunity to share why your credit union is amazing. Every contact with every member is an opportunity to spread that CU virus.Recruit the right attitudesSure, the credit union difference makes a real, everyday difference for members, but it’s also a powerful reason for employees to come to work each day.If you’re on the hunt for new employees, don’t just slap together the standard classified ad with benefits and requirements. HR needs to get Marketing involved and make sure the brand and mission shine through first.The best people have the talent to work a lot of places; tell them why they should come to your CU. And don’t be so shy – members like knowing the CU is a great place to work, with happy, motivated employees.Plus, some of your best people might already be members and believers. 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Brian Wringer Former watermelon farmer Brian Wringer wears several hats for iDiz Incorporated, including Web Projects Manager, Wordsmith, and Big Idea Guy.

Left-back Assou-Ekotto is out of favour at Tottenham and is yet to feature in any of the club’s games so far this season. Carroll, meanwhile, has seen his first-team opportunities diminish following the £100million spending spree that has seen midfielders Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Etienne Capoue and Paulinho arrive at White Hart Lane. Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp now wants to be reunited with the pair as he aims to take Rangers back in to the Barclays Premier League. He faces stiff competition for Carroll, though, as two top-flight clubs are understood to be interested in taking the England Under-21 international on loan. Redknapp has also been linked with a move for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor, but it is understood that the west London club have not made a bid for the Togo striker due to his huge wages. Press Association QPR have launched a bid to sign Tottenham’s Tom Carroll and Benoit Assou-Ekotto on loan, Press Association Sport understands.
Curvy fended off hot favourite Giovanni Canaletto to complete a hat-trick for David Wachman in the Airlie Stud Gallinule Stakes at the Curragh. Press Association British raider Prince Gagarin cut out much of the running in the 10-furlong Group Three contest, with Curvy his closest pursuer in the hands of Wayne Lordan and Giovanni Canaletto – sporting a noseband to help with his head carriage – waited with. The front two looked set to assert when the market leader came under pressure from the home turn, but Aidan O’Brien’s runner did knuckle down for Ryan Moore and give himself a chance in the final furlong before going down by a fast-diminishing neck. The pacesetting Prince Gagarin was not disgraced in third. Giovanni Canaletto was sent off an even-money chance, having been off the track since scoring at Leopardstown in October as a dirty scope ruled him out of the Chester Vase, with Curvy a 15-2 shot to add to successive handicap triumphs at Navan. The runner-up was eased to 12-1 by Coral for the Investec Derby, with Paddy Power going 16-1. Wachman said: “She was a big, weak filly last year and has come into her own as a three-year-old. She doesn’t do a lot when she hits the front. “She could go for the Ribblesdale (at Royal Ascot) and is entitled to go anywhere now.” The trainer also handles Oaks favourite Legatissimo and added: “She seems well. We’ll see how she gets on over the next couple of weeks and hopefully she will go to Epsom for the Oaks.” O’Brien said of the beaten favourite: “He’s still babyish. He’s more professional than he was last year, but is still a baby. Ryan looked after him as well as he could and I’d say he’ll get a mile and a half well.”
