MSFL Committees

MSFL committee volunteers

There are a total of five MSFL Committees in addition to a board of directors that make MSFL happen. A description of each committee, its current chair, and current members are noted below.

It takes time and effort from lots of volunteers to put on the MSFL Annual Event. We are always looking for more volunteers!! As you can see, many of the same people are doing most of the work. Please contact us if you see a committee that you'd like to help out on and we will get in touch with you.

Finally, if you have it in your future to become a member of the MSFL Board of Directors, it is a requirement that any person wishing to run for a seat on our board must have been part of a committee for at least two years. All the more reasons to get involved today!
