11. Who do I contact if I have questions?
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will respond to you shortly.
12. I’m interested in being a sponsor, who should I be in touch with and when?
The film committee begins meeting early in the New Year to start organizing that summer’s series. We ask all potential new sponsors to reach out to us via email (email@example.com) to register your interest by no later than February 1st of that year.
13. I reached out in the past, why do I have to register my interest again?
The film committee is a group of local volunteers who pull the series together in their spare time and the membership rolls shift from year to year. To ensure your interest is properly noted and considered, we ask potential new sponsors to reach out to us again at the start of the planning season.
14. How do you choose your sponsors?
Priority goes to returning organizations who’ve been with us from the start of the series. For all other potential new sponsors, the committee weighs our projected budget and the slate of options at the beginning of each planning season to determine our needs and what offers can be put to the most effective use.
15. Are there other ways to be involved?
Yes! The committee is always looking for help. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org about volunteering.
