In general, these are the expectations of Committee Members: Attend committee meetings as scheduled, usually 6-10 meetings per year. Prepare for meetings in advance by studying the agenda, reading all supporting material, and researching topics and issues.

Things like production (sound & lighting), site infrastructure, performer hospitality, volunteer coordination, safety & security, food and craft vendors, etc. Committee members should be ready to work and lead a team of volunteers on the weekend of the Festival. Finance, Sponsorship & Fund Development Committee This Committee handles the details of the League’s financial management and ensures that the Board meets its fiduciary responsibilities. 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.
