FAR-West needs your involvement. The Board is looking for a conference coordinator (or co-coordinators) as well as a group of Southern California folks to work with the Board to organize the 2018 conference in Woodland Hills, CA on Oct 11-14, 2018. While coordinator(s) would ideally be located in Southern California, individuals from other locations could also be coordinators. It is recommended that one of the coordinator(s) be a non-musician who isn’t committed to touring.
The position(s) come with many in-place supports: completed hotel contract, ongoing involvement of the Board, a Communications/Social Media coordinator, and coordinators of Sponsorships and Partnerships. It would require putting together a team of SoCal “Movers and Shakers” to work on various other pieces of the conference.
If you step up now, you can work with the 2017 team to learn what they are doing and you'll have a head start for 2018. Please contact Mark Kaufman, FAR-West President, president@far-west.
