The Rainbow Trout Music Festival (RTMF) is looking for passionate, fun, and excited individuals to join our board of directors. The RTMF is a festival that is based on volunteer support to make the magic and logistics of the festival happen. While the Board makes decisions about the festival’s overall direction, and each have a specific operational role, there is also an understanding that this is a working board. This means there are often other duties and responsibilities that directors need to take on to execute a successful festival. As a working board committed to volunteer leadership, this is the core of what has built the festival and will continue to make it great.
Available Director Positions:
Marketing and Communications Director - Responsible for all festival communications including e-mail, website, social media, press, and overall festival messaging. Responsible for promotion of festival to drive ticket sales through online and grassroots marketing, coordination of promotional collateral, and community partnerships.
Financial Director - Responsible for overall financial management, bookkeeping, budgeting, and ensuring the board is presented with fair and accurate financial information including preparation of the year end financial statements.
Vendor Director - Responsible for all vendors at the festival, including food vendors, artisan vendors, event permits, and helping oversee the Roy G. Biv grill.
- To be 18 or older, a Canadian citizen, and not in a state of bankruptcy.
- To be a member in good standing (this requires a $25 annual fee).
- To uphold the purpose and values of RTMF. See our “Safer Spaces” policy here.
- To commit to regular meetings throughout the year, operational tasks year-round, and
additional responsibilities at the festival.
Please submit your resume and letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org, including "Board of Directors Application" in your subject line. Please apply by March 8 to be considered for nomination by the Board.
The Board of Directors will evaluate all applicants and approve a slate of candidates to present at the AGM. We’ll contact our nominees March 30. The AGM will take place on date TBD.
The Board of Directors thanks all our volunteers for their ongoing support!
