Festivals Kelowna is inviting members of the community to submit their name for consideration as a board member for a two-year term starting June 2011.

Up to five board members positions are currently available.

Festivals Kelowna is a non-profit society which produces community-focused, arts based festivals and programs like the Celebrate Canada Day—Kelowna Festival, Parks Alive!, Arts Alive! as well as an artisan program and the Kelowna Buskers program.

With a family-friendly approach to its events, the society strives to enhance the lifestyle of local residents and visitors through a positive cultural experience in popular, outdoor environments.

The Festivals Kelowna board of directors supports the work of staff through an advisory role.

“With our focus on community events, we’re looking for people who have a passion for serving their community and making it a better place to live,” said Ryan Donn, president of Festivals Kelowna.

“We also want people who can bring ideas to our board about how to enhance and help our events grow. It’s our goal to produce the best events for Kelowna that we possibly can,” Donn said.

Interested applicants should have previous board or committee experience, understand the purpose and nature of community events, and bring an enthusiastic yet practical approach to the challenges and opportunities facing non-profits.

Applicants must commit to attending monthly board meetings, as well as additional sub-committee meetings as needed.

Board members are an important part of the society’s operation and provide input on a variety of areas including policy development, fund development, program content for the society’s events, as well as promotions and marketing.

Individuals wishing to submit their name for consideration are invited to complete an application form available on the Festivals Kelowna home page at www.festivalskelowna.com. Include a current resumé outlining their suitability for a board position to RMills@festivalskelowna.com by Friday, March 11.
