We Hope to Find Volunteers Under the Tree This Year!

Greetings from the OC Mini Maker Faire Team,

Our first event is behind us and we consider it a wonderful success thanks to all the excellent people who helped make it happen, including our amazing volunteers.   Now we are looking forward to next year and OCMMF 2013 to be bigger and better but, we can’t do it without the help of some passionate, dedicated, hardworking folks like you who are willing to volunteer some time and energy.    We are looking for a few good people to join our core Leadership Team to help us not only throughout the year but, especially on event day to keep things organized and running smoothly.  We’ll also be needing general volunteer help the day of the event, read on for some details.
Leadership Team Members needed include:
Accounting/financial Supervisor
     Someone with experience to help make sure we’re handling our finances properly, getting taxes paid right and following the rules, this is mostly a mentor/advisory position.
Fundraising Team
     Help us make connections and find businesses and individuals with the Maker Spirit who are willing to invest a little money in the OC Mini Maker Faire and help it to grow in the years to come.
Area Leaders (aka Mini Bosses)
     People who will be in charge of specific areas during the day of the OCMMF event.  Duties include but, are not necessarily limited to: helping to recruit volunteers for your area before the big day, checking in Makers & Vendors in your area and helping things run                       smoothly in your area during the event.   Many areas have a theme like Fiber Arts (yarn, cloth, etc), Maker Stage (music, demos, speakers, etc), vendors (small Etsy type vendors selling their wares), robotics, Homegrown Village (gardening, beekeeping, etc)
       No particular experience is necessary for this position we just need some dedicated, excited people who are willing to put in the time and energy to make it the best they can.
As a Leadership Team Member you will be fed and cared for the day of the event, 10 of your friends and family will be admitted for free to the event and you will have the pride of knowing that you are helping the Maker Community in Orange County become awesome.
General volunteers for the day of the event. 
These people will work for a few hours the day of the event with such tasks as ticket sales, runners, set-up crew, clean-up crew, etc. they will have the rest of the time to themselves to enjoy the event.
Please contact Bequi at Bequi@OCMiniMakerFaire.com if you’re interested.   You can also follow the progress of OCMMF 2013 via FacebookTwitter and Google+.
“There are 3,010,232 creative people in Orange County and we want to bring you together to share your passions.   We believe that when this happens you’ll not only inspire each other but everyone around you.  Join the movement, discover the Maker in yourself.”
