The Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau and Des Moines Area Sports Commission are seeking "Catch Champions" to help bring events to the area. The bureau is trying to recognize people who help their associations, leagues and organizations bring events to Des Moines. In fiscal year 2012-13, more than 200 events were the direct result of a Catch Champion working with the Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau or Des Moines Area Sports Commission. Champions included Suku Radia, president and CEO of Bankers Trust Co., who led the effort to secure the 2017 LPGA Solheim Cup, and Jamie Pollard, director of athletics at Iowa State University, who helped secure the 2013 NCAA Division I Wrestling National Championships.
