Preschool Fair Coordinator- General Board
TMC’s annual Preschool Fair brings together local families and preschools each November. Planning this event involves working with the preschool fair committee to book the venue, contact preschools to participate, advertising the event (helped by our Marketing team), coordinating set-up on the day of the event and coordinating with the newsletter team to create the extremely useful resource-the Preschool Fair Booklet. Once you gather which preschools are participating, forward it to the newsletter team and they create the booklet. This event has been provided for many years, so you are not starting from scratch. You will have a list of past participating preschools to contact.

Workshops are generally held weekday evenings and the planning can be done at your leisure, mostly online.

This role can be shared between 2 people, if desired.
