Committee Members

 

Our on-going Committees are crucial to the running of the organization in all its various aspects.  These committees are populated by Board members, but also like to have representatives from the community at large some with specific expertise that would benefit a particular committee.  The Committees that make major decisions on what we do and how we do it include the following:

 

  • Operations Committee

This is the group that does all the detailed planning about Festival operations Things like production (sound & lighting), site infrastructure, performer hospitality, volunteer coordination, safety & security, food and craft vendors, etc. 

 

  • Sponsorship & Fund Development Committee

Home County depends on government grants, corporate sponsorships and private donations for all of its operating costs.  This committee is responsible for identifying appropriate federal, provincial and municipal grants and writing the applications for them as well as seeking out corporate sponsorships and donations.

 

  • Marketing Committee

This committee handles all the public communication and promotion of the Festival and other events throughout the year.  This includes media promotion and all social media and website activities as well.

 

  • Planning & Governance Committee

This is the group that looks after the details of how the organization is governed. It drafts policies and procedures for Board approval and oversees the strategic planning activities of the League.

 

  • Finance Committee

This Committee handles the details of the League’s financial management and ensures that the Board meets its fiduciary responsibilities.

 

  • Programming Committee

This committee plans and manages all of the shows presented by the League outside of the Festival itself.  This usually amounts to between 3 and 5 shows per year.
