2009/2010 SFVU FIELD & PRO STAFF PROGRAMS

We appreciate your interest in researching the possibilities of qualifying to work with The SFVU Business Group and our great team employees, reps and manufacturers. Since each and every one of you reading this has a different level of desire as to what you hope to accomplish from your participation in a program of this nature, our management staff, in coordination with current participants, has designed the following programs, updated and enhanced for the 2009-2010 season, for all levels of entry and participation aspirations:

For those of you, who are CURRENT ACTIVE members of The FISHERS of MEN NATIONAL TOURNAMENT TRAIL, please click here.

For more detailed information on our higher level PRO STAFF program which requires much more of a commitment, but which offers significantly higher rewards as well as opportunities to be rewarded financially, please click here.

 

FIELD STAFF DISCOUNT PROGRAM

The SFVU Field Staff program is set-up for those individuals who would like to loyally support what The SFVU Business Group, as well as our great team of manufacturer’s stands for. You will receive some great discounted product, without having to make a long-term contracted commitment. At the field staff level, participation is controlled more by your desire than by program mandates and there are no administrative points to track. With that being said, unfortunately there are also no opportunities to make money or earn incentives other than discounts on product and the chance to test new product. However, bi-annually, we review current field staff ranks and we promote those field staff members who demonstrate loyalty and promotional efforts, to our pro-staff ranks. In addition, since we have no way of gauging your present knowledge of all of our manufacturers and their product lines, we offer you an opportunity to purchase a small field staff intro pack. This pack is a one-time purchase and offered at substantially lower cost than what your discount program would ever be able to match. Because of this, only one intro pack per applicant is available.

I am impressed at the quality of the manufacturers product offered as well as the integrity of the leadership at SFVU!” George G. – Georgia   “Being an SFVU Field Staff Member has been a great eye-opener to what the industry has to offer a guy like me who is just getting started in this sport!”  Daniel C. – New York     “Just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to serve SFVU, your faith based businessapproach, all while getting some super discounts.” Wayne B. – Minnesota

The TEAM SFVU / FOM MEMBER DISCOUNT PROGRAM

The Team SFVU / FOM Member program has been specifically set-up for those individuals who are current active members of The Fishers of Men National Tournament Trail. As a business, we actively support, through time, effort and finances, this ministry and the awesome work it does through its tournament trail. Many of the staff involved with SFVU volunteer countless hours in support of the FOM mission and our corporate managerial leadership have made significant financial donations in support of FOM divisional and national operations. We believe the strength of this organization lies in the members, and for that reason, we developed this program to offer you special benefits and discounts not available anywhere else. For those active current members of FOMNTT who would like to loyally support what The SFVU Business Group as well as our great team of Christian manufacturer’s stands for, you are automatically offered a special discount program without having to make any long-term contracted commitment. Your participation is controlled more by your desire than by program mandates and there are no administrative points to track. With that being said, unfortunately there are also no opportunities for you to personally make money or earn incentives other than great discounts on product from our Christian manufacturers.

However, for every purchase you make through this program, SFVU will dedicate and donate 5% of the value of your purchase directly to your local Fishers of Men division.

“I have watched what the SFVU team has done over the past years in support of FOM Ministries and it is just incredible, from the money donated to the time spent to the lives eternally saved thru their efforts, these guys are just the very best example for what all Christian businesses should be.” Brad F. – Pennsylvania   “Being a long time FOM member, I love  the awesome discounts and the fact I am supporting Christian tackle companies with my hard earned dollars thru the SFVU/FOM discount program and now they are donating even more money to my division and the National ministry, what more could you ask for?” Gary S. – Indiana   “As a current director for The Fishers of Men National Tournament Trail, I can’t tell you how much it means to know I have a Christian resource to direct my guys to for great fishing tackle in addition to knowing I am helping fund my own divisions expenses, a great help for guys like me who volunteer our time and don’t have much in the way of money” Chuck B. - Missouri

The SFVU PRO-STAFF PROGRAM

The SFVU PRO-STAFF program has been primarily set-up for you as an individual who is looking to enter into or advance in the fishing industry without leaving their current careers. Whether you are just a weekend club angler who loves being involved in this sport or you are a full-time tournament participant wanting to move even further along in your career, this program has something for you, whether you fish locally, regionally or nationally. The SFVU PRO-STAFF program offers significant discounts on product and apparel as well as national exposure, tournament cash incentives, annual free product allotments, annual cash stipends, free gas cards, boat and truck wraps, etc…

You can just imagine, the thousands of requests we get, all looking for the same thing; free money, free product, free apparel, paid entry fees, etc… I think you get the picture. While nothing in life is truly free, we wanted to work out a program that would allow someone seriously interested in helping advance The SFVU Business Group name, our mission statement and all our represented manufacturers line of products, a venue to prove their worth and subsequently earn their way up an advancement ladder of position, prestige and better discounts along with other awesome rewards and cash bonuses. Let us be very clear, if you want something for nothing, SFVU and the manufacturers we represent will not be able to help you. Secondly, if you are just looking to jump from one product line this year to the next best deal next year, please do not proceed. All SFVU pro-staff members are legally contracted and sign a loyalty agreement which means you need to be serious about your role in this sport. Your attitude and how you carry and represent yourself is far more important to us than your fishing accomplishments. The promotion of The SFVU Business Group, our group of Elite and Flagship Dealers and our great team of manufacturers is critical to your success as a pro-staffer. As you will see, you are rewarded on a performance oriented basis and the more you do that directly relates to the advancement of SFVU, our dealers and our manufacturers, the more you get.

As you can see from the research we hope you have completed so far, The SFVU Business Group is a multi diverse company with numerous divisions all dedicated to the advancement of the fishing industry, and as such, we have far more to offer than any one single line business towards the advancement of your career in this industry. A critical component of our success and image is reliant on supporting those recreational fisherman, tournament anglers and guides who carry themselves with the highest of integrity, steadfastness to their faith and who are always working for the betterment of the sport through active support of family, youth, the disadvantaged and conservation related activities. We also look for team players who can actively work in close coordination with other SFVU pro-staff members as well as those individuals who can be accountable to our Regional and National managers. In addition, as you have already determined, The SFVU Business Group is dedicated to the promotional advancement and loyal to only one manufacturer per industry vertical so it only goes to say that we look for our pro-staff to work towards switching over and remaining loyal in use and promotion to these companies, those being: Kistler Rods, Pflueger Reels, Solar Bat Sunglasses, McCoy Line & Braid, All Terrain Tackle Jigs, Mizmo Tubes, RoboWorm Hand Poured Soft Plastics, Secret Weapon Spinnerbaits & Buzzbaits, JC’s Lures, as well as Hooks from the any of the TTI – Blakemore Fishing Group which are Daiichi Bleeding Red, X-Point, Stand-Out Drop Shot or Tru-Turn. We realize there is an educational component to becoming comfortable with our complete line of offerings from all the above manufacturers so, in consideration of the potential cost to beginning the switch over of your tackle to our featured manufacturers, we offer any candidate, once selected as an official SFVU pro-staff member, an additional extra 10% off your authorized Tier Level discount during your 1st 60 days of activity to help accomplish this.

To be officially considered, you will need to provide our national management team as well as regional review staff with an online application, which can be submitted at http://www.sfvu.com/prostaff/newstaff.htm as well as a brief fishing resume/cover letter and one digital picture suitable for promotional purposes. Within that application, we will be asking for three (3) references with complete and current contact information including e-mails, phone numbers and mailing addresses so that we can easily reach them to verify your potential, character and industry accomplishments? In addition we will want to know about what knowledge you have of our manufacturers as well as details on the influence you may have with independent tackle dealers within your immediate local area.

We thank you in advance for your interest and hope that you see yourself fitting into our team approach of win-win-win two-fold rewards through the points based program as well as cash incentives outlined below.

With the best of wishes for great fishing, bountiful livewells, a spirit filled life and God’s continued blessings,

“I am so privileged to be working with SFVU and all that it stands for in its Christian mission statement. As a WBT touring pro, I can definitely say every aspect of my fishing career has sky-rocketed since being selected and with the personal help and attention I get, I don’t just feel like a  pro-staff member, I feel like family!” Marsha G.  – Arkansas   “Being a pro staff member for The SFVU Business Group means that with all they have to offer, I have almost unlimited opportunity to advance in this sport, from the chance to use high quality tackle at incredible discounts to the help I get going from tournament to tournament to the chance I get to make a difference in this sport by representing a Christian company with the integrity, diversity and breadth of reach they offer. I highly recommend SFVU.” Jamey C. – Florida   “Thanks for allowing me to participate on your pro staff team even though I am not a big tournament participant. With your help and encouragement, I am doing what I love and that is helping to advance the sport of fishing for  generations to come thru my kids camps and school programs. I hope the manufacturers we represent know just how much SFVU is doing for them, currently as well as for their futures!” Steve G. - Pennsylvania
