BOARD NOMINATION PROCESS

To become a member of the Folklorama Board of Directors, a successful nominee must be an Individual Member of the Folk Arts Council of Winnipeg Inc.

Current Pavilion Coordinators are ineligible to apply for a position on the Board during the corresponding Board term.

Serving on the Folklorama Board takes time and commitment, but the role can be a rewarding experience because the Board provides support and direction to Folklorama’s year-round governance functions.

Board nominations for the 2024 – 2025 term are closed as of Wednesday, December 13, 2023.  Please contact Richele Philippot, Executive Assistant to learn more about the Board of Directors.

Please contact Richele Philippot, Executive Assistant in Fall 2024 to register for the next session.
