Dear Prospective Committee Member:
Thank you for your interest in volunteering to be a member of the Arizona Matsuri Steering Committee. We are currently accepting applications. All Steering Committee members are volunteers; there are no paid positions. This is a working committee and each members accepts a position of responsibility.
The Arizona Matsuri is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based on the dedication of volunteers who wish to introduce and educate all who are interested in traditional and modern Japanese culture.
If you are interested in volunteering your time to be part of the Steering Committee, please (1) let us know why you are interested and (2) any special talents you have to offer. We are also interested in your relationship with Japan and Japanese culture.
The Steering Committee is led by dedicated Co-Chairs who are supported by Coordinators who take on specific duties to coordinate the food and merchandise vendors, various stage performers, special interest groups and so forth.
The Steering Committee meets once a month, usually from September through February, to plan its next event. The festival is always held the last full weekend of February. Steering Committee members are busiest in the two months preceeding the festival, and of course over the festival weekend.
Besides Steering Committee members, we are always in need of volunteers who can commit their time to support the respective groups during the planning stages as well as the busy weekend of the festival. If you cannot commit to the responsibilities of a Steering Committee member at this time, please consider volunteering your time and talents by completing the Volunteer Application.
To be considered as a Steering Vommittee member, please submit the form below. The Steering Committee Co-Chairs will review it, provide it to the full Steering Committee for a vote and then reach out to you regarding next steps.
Thank you for your interest in joining the Arizona Matsuri Steering Committee.
