The Miami Herald writes about our Volunteer Efforts:
The Volunteer Services Department will be out in full force on the 4th of July trying to spread the word about the need for volunteers for Pro Bowl 2010 and Super Bowl XLIV. Please stop by any one of the recruiting stations below and sign up to become an Ambassador for your city.
This is a great opportunity for you to join the efforts towards making South Florida a prime location for two prime time sporting events. Opportunities include staffing the NFL hotels, greeting visitors at the region's airports, working in the Convention Center and assisting at NFL and Host Committee events.

Over 250 small, minority and women-owned business owners attended the event to engage in a healthy discussion about doing business with the NFL and the Super Bowl Host Committee.
Speakers spoke of their previous experience with the Emerging Business Program, touching upon the benefits they received from the program and the things to avoid. Some notable members of the panel included the NFL's Tisha Ford, Miami-Dade Commissioner Barbara Jordan and Mike Zimmer.
Community Outreach Coordinator, Kellen Arnold, on behalf of the Emerging Business department said, "we believe the event was a success, because we had a lot of new companies in attendance who really needed to receive the information presented."
And here at the South Florida Super Bowl Host Committee, we are always trying new and innovative ways to get you involved. In fact, we're proud to say we're the first Host Committee to use social networking sites, like this blog, to stay in touch with fans, volunteers and businesses involved with the Super Bowl.
And that's not all. We have also immersed ourselves into social networking by engaging you via Facebook, and Twitter.
This is our way of reaching out to all those interested in the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl 2010. By doing so, it helps create a real sense of community with you, the good people who call South Florida home.
But we're not stopping there. South Florida, as you know, is also one of the most diverse communities in the country. With that as a backdrop, we have decided to create the first ever "En Espanol" version of our website.
This will allow Spanish-speaking individuals to gain information regarding Super Bowl XLIV and Pro Bowl 2010.
Beyond that, we have also started the process of compiling an English and Spanish edition of our media and visitor guides, which will be distributed to international media from all over the world. We are proud to embrace the world's diversity and take a step towards surpassing language barriers.
It is our pleasure to be a part of one of the world's greatest sporting events. And we thank you for taking part in this incredible ride.
And for the first time in decades, the Pro Bowl is coming back to the mainland. The NFL's All Star Game will be held the week before Super Bowl XLIV on January 31st, 2010, also at Dolphin Stadium. The Pro Bowl is already generating excitement, and you can be part of it all.
We want to make sure that you and your friends come out to Dolphin Stadium to watch your favorite NFL All-Stars showcase their talent on the gridiron. You can witness one of the greatest collections of professional football talent known to the game. Be a part of history and make sure you're inside Dolphin Stadium for the 2010 Pro Bowl.
NFL Emerging Business in conjunction with the Honorable Barbara J. Jordan, Miami-Dade County Commissioner - District 1, will host an NFL Emerging Business Workshop on June 16, 2009. The workshop will be hosted at Florida Memorial University in the Lou Rawls Center for the Performing Arts.
The Office of Miami-Dade Commissioner, Barbara J. Jordan took the initiative to sponsor this event alongside Sprint and Miami-Dade County. This workshop will bring awareness on the various possibilities available for small businesses that are managed by minority and/or women owners.
The NFL Emerging Business Program is designed to provide local minority and woman-owned businesses with prime opportunities to participate in the Super Bowl procurement process. The program does not guarantee the receipt of Super Bowl-related contracts, but it does insure that minority and women-owned businesses receive the proper information regarding the Super Bowl procurement process and programming opportunities.
As you may know, we are officially on Facebook and Twitter in an effort to keep up with today's new and improved methods of communication.
We want to keep you updated with the latest updates coming from the Super Bowl Host Committee.
Don't be afraid to drop a comment on our Facebook page or give a "tweet" on our Twitter profile. Let us know what you think and give us your feedback.
Follow us and stay in touch with all of our events that lead up to Super Bowl XLIV and the 2010 Pro Bowl.
