"Over 41 years, the Boilermaker has provided unique experiences to more than 300,000 participants. The advent of social media allows people to share their experiences to the wired world on a 24/7 basis," said Boilermaker President, Mark Donovan. "Today's participant places a high value on his or her personal experiences and they use social media to enhance their experiences and seek out new ones. The Boilermaker Ambassador program marries those together to create a positive engagement experience for all."

Boilermaker officials ask that interested parties visit the Boilermaker website to learn more about the new Ambassador Program or to apply. The deadline for applications is Friday, January 11th, 2019.
