USBC association logos
In an effort to further enhance USBC’s brand recognition, we have created logos designed for association use. Any associations that don’t already have their approved logos can contact their Regional Managers and request them. To find out who your Regional Manager is, please go to, or click here.

In addition, any materials received by USBC Headquarters containing incorrect logos will be corrected, and the association will receive the proper logos for future use.

Association Representative Program webinar
How well do your bowlers know you? Do the proprietors in your association know the directors on your board?

There is one answer to this question: Communication! Join Regional Manager Jim Zebehazy as he guides you through the steps in creating an effective program called the Association Representative Program. This program can be developed for associations of all sizes.

This one-on-one communication tool can improve all aspects of your association. It is designed to help build proprietor relations, improve tournament participation, and, ultimately, assure that your bowlers know your association and what you do for them. These webinars will be held on Monday, Sept. 24 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern. If there is enough interest, more sessions will be added.
