Meetings are always open to the public but in order to vote at the Annual Meeting you must be a member. If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity, coming to a board meeting is a great way to begin. You will be able to get a feel for the behind the scenes operation that makes the festival the great event that it is.
Board meetings are held on the third Sunday of the month at 1:00 pm from November through February. For the remainder of the year, the board meets the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm unless otherwise noted.
Starting with the November 2018 meeting, all of the Board Meetings are going to be in one location. All meeting will be held at the Rutland Township Hall, 2461 Heath Road, Hastings, Michigan 49058.
Due to the new location, no food will be allowed at any of the meetings. This means there is no dinner before a meeting.
The Meeting Schedule for the next Festival Year is as follows:
