There are many ways to get involved with Southeast Festivals & Events Association.  One of the easiest and most rewarding is to join a committee.  Being part of a committee means that you get to know other festival planners and suppliers who feel committed to the same causes you do. Right now, the committees we offer are:


Marketing Committee

Finance Committee
Education Committee
Conference Committee
Bylaws Committee

If you’d like to be part of a committee, we’ll help you get directed to the next meeting of the committee. Please email your information and the committee you would like to join to

If you have an idea for a committee you’d like to help start, let us know.  

We’d love your help in making your association even better!
