Cap SpringBreak

I can’t release the name of resort just yet, but I can tell you this much:

• It’s Ocean Front and has over 250 rooms all of which we have reserved. EVERYONE you see on the beach or at the bars is a fellow CAP/PAP Member!

• Within the resort itself there are numerous restaurants and bars as well as a fitness centre and importantly a large conference and expo center.

• The exchange rates in Cyrus are very favorable and drinks and entertainment are VERY inexpensive (This is important!)

As you know CAP and PAP events are FREE for all CAP and PAP affiliates so this is your chance to enjoy an exciting four days networking, drinking, learning, partying, finding new partners, drinking, and hanging out on the beach with all your online friends and colleagues.

ErinErin Argue, BetUS

Erin stumbled upon this industry innocently enough; wondering whether a sportsbook was hardcover or paperback. Envisioning her career as a media buyer for print was an appealing departure from marketing ESL programs; but what lay ahead was more exciting than she could have anticipated. For 3 years she concentrated her professional attention on learning about wagering and managing affiliate relationships for a renowned Sportsbook. In 2006 an incredible opportunity with BetUS was presented and she quickly settled into her new role and responsibilities as Affiliate Marketing Director for BetUS Partners.

She brings a unique approach to affiliate marketing; incorporating her passion for people and sports with the diligence and hard work necessary to manage and motivate a stellar team. Sweetening deals with home-baked treats is what she is truly known for however. Her ability to get on with nearly everyone has as much to do with her chocolate brittle pie and cheddar scones as it does her friendly personality.
