OPEN planning committee POSITIONS
The Flurry Festival is run by a hard-working committed team of volunteers dedicated to keeping traditional dance and music alive and well in our community. We occasionally seek local people of like-mind who are able to attend monthly meetings (usually in Colonie, NY), who can work independently, interact with a 30-person committee, and would be comfortable overseeing a volunteer crew (scheduling, training).
Computer/Internet access is required for communications and using the committee database. We prefer local residents of the Capital District/Saratoga Region (i.e. for meetings, and ease of travel to festival in case of bad weather).
Hours needed vary depending on position. All positions are part-time.
What do you get in return?
- Two Full-Weekend passes (one for you, one for a guest).
- A room (you pay) at the Hilton Hotel *if position requires you to be working during the Flurry.*
- A parking pass at the Hilton Hotel if working the festival weekend.
- A way to be part of -- and help others enjoy -- one of the biggest and best dance & music festivals on the East Coast!
