Join Our Volunteers

Sign up for 2019!

Are you part of the South Lake Minnetonka community?  Would you like to work with a fun, eager bunch of folks to help the Arctic Fever winter celebration?  We're looking for volunteers at all levels:

  • Activities and Events: On the ground help before and during Arctic Fever

  • Sales: If you have a talent for selling, we have a list of sponsors that are either past sponsors or hopefully new sponsors that always like to be personally contacted.

  • Ideas: We're open to 'em and, even if you don't have the time to directly volunteer, we sure would like to hear what you have to say.  Send us a message. We're always looking for new ideas, activities, and new ways of doing things.

Committee Opportunities

The Arctic Fever Committee is looking for individuals who will work with the executive committee but who are self-starters and willing to take responsibility for executing the event.  Responsibilities include but may not be limited to:

  • Assist in developing and executing the event plan with the Executive committee
  • Attend all meetings of the main Arctic Fever committee
  • Hold subcommittee meetings beginning in September, independent of the Executive committee when necessary and provide meeting minutes to the Executive committee.
  • Provide feedback for budget management (manage budget if given one)
  • Follow up on marketing and editorial opportunities
  • Build a team and work well with the venue, sponsors, volunteers, public works, city staff, council, commission and guests
  • Subcommittee chairs will be asked to assist with fund raising or securing prizes for their event if applicable.
  • Candidates should have at least a passing familiarity with the activity for which they are applying to chair.
  • Time commitment for Subcommittee chairs is approximately 4 hours a month through September, more as the event approaches.   Time commitment after January 1st increases considerably, depending on the nature of the event and the preparation already in place.
  •  Subcommittee chairs should be available to work the Friday-Saturday-Sunday weekend of Arctic Fever.
