  3. Distribute necessary signage and ensure that the host groups are following Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest’s guidelines

**Daytime availability is an asset for this committee, but not required.

The Family & Cultural Events Committee is looking for fresh eyes as they create a new vision/focus for the committee. They are looking for organized and dedicated volunteers. Previous event or social media marketing experience is an asset. A volunteer with daytime availability and willingness to recruit new events would be a great addition to the Family & Cultural Events Committee.
