Organizing Campaigns and Events

If you are organized, can facilitate meetings and enjoy working as part of a team, help organize an FSTV fundraising event or campaign. Your commitment may last several weeks or months, and your time may vary from a couple of hours each month to several hours leading up to an event.

Volunteer to organize and promote an FSTV event and encourage the public and your own networks to get involved. Committee roles may involve recruiting event volunteers and participants, coordinating on-site logistics on the day of the event, communicating with sponsors and more.
