About Pac-12 Sales at Oregon State University
Pac-12 SALES & Pac-12 MMR LLC was formed to provide Sales and Service resources to the Pac-12 membership by placing Pac-12 Sales staff on campus to work closely with athletic departments to increase sponsorship, ticket or fundraising revenue. In recent years, the Pac-12 Conference has worked closely with institutions to develop and share best practices throughout the year and on special projects. The creation of Pac-12 Sales & Pac-12 MMR is a new endeavor to directly assist in these areas on our campuses.
