The Ag Demo area needs coordinators now and during the Fair. If you're interested in helping out, please email the Fair staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 207-568-4142.
Here's where we need help:
Speaker and Exhibitor Recruitment: Coordinators help determine what topics we want to present and the speakers and identify speakers and demonstrators for the Fair.
Application Review: Coordinators help evaluate applications for exhibits, talks and demonstrations.
Ag Demo Tent and Booth Set-up: On the Wednesday before the Fair, coordinators map out exhibitor booth space, set up tables and chairs in the speaker tents, and post signs.
Speaker Tents During the Fair: Litchfield (speakers tent), Windsor (speakers tent), the Ag Demonstrations Exhibitors Tent and the AV Tent. We need one coordinator for each tent for two shifts each day. Responsibilities include helping orient speakers, introducing speakers, keeping speakers on schedule. AV tent volunteers should be acquainted with operation of slide projectors and computer presentation hook up with digital projectors. Coordinators give presenters their t-shirts or honorarium checks and meals ticket at the conclusion of each talk. Coordinators keep the area organized in general and keep schedule boards up-to-date with changes and cancellations.
Seed Cleaning During the Fair: We have seed cleaning equipment on display and we like to demonstrate it and allow fairgoers to have their seed cleaned. Coordinators should be familiar with operating seed cleaning equipment that we have demonstrated at the Fair in the past.
