Titans Fan Advisory Board

TRENTON, NJ – The Trenton Titans, in line with their dedication to their fan base and realizing important input can come from that group, have formed the Trenton Titans Fan Advisory Board.

The Advisory Board at inception consists of 10 selected longtime area hockey fans, Titans President/CEO Rich Lisk and members of the team’s front office staff.
“When I first came up with the idea of a Fan Advisory Board, and incorporated it into the Philadelphia Soul, I thought it was a great business concept,’’ said Lisk.

“Now, with the passion of the Trenton Titans fans, we will definitely take this concept to the next level.’’

With its interaction with the team’s front office, the Board, meeting monthly, will, in several ways, be of service to both the team and Titans fans in general.
