Are you new to the Markham Fair? Want to join and committee and volunteer? The best way to start is to come to the fair during fair time. Locate a area you are interested in at the fair. Introduce yourself to the Committee Chairperson. Find out how you can help and see where you can volunteer your time. Some Committees may already have enough volunteers, however the Chairperson will be able to help you find something you’d like to do.
New Committee Members complete a registration form, attach the $5 fee and include Chairperson’s signature.
If you are joining a Markham Fair Committee for the first time, please contact the Chairperson of the committee to find out if committee positions are available. The committee Chairperson must approve before you proceed to the next step.
All Committee Members are required to complete a Committee Member Registration Form. You will only need to fill it out once. If you are new to committees at Markham Fair, please download the form, complete it and send it to your Committee Chairperson with your membership fee.
All Committee Members are required to join the Markham and East York Agricultural Society. By completing your Committee Member Registration Form with Chairperson signature and submitting your $5 fee, you will become a member of the Society. The fee is charged annually. Committee Members must be 18 or older to be eligible to vote at the Annual General Meeting.
If you do not complete the Committee Member Registration Form and submit the membership fee, you cannot be on a Committee or a member of the Markham and East York Agricultural Society.
As an organization, we would like to more effectively communicate with each other. Please ensure that your mailing and e-mail address are up to date. You will receive messages or Markham Fair mail through the office or from your Primary Committee Chairperson.
Note: your Primary Committee is the one from which you choose to receive all your information. You may be participating on more than one committee, however to reduce duplicate messages, you will only receive information about the Fair from your Primary Committee Chairperson.
Anyone wishing to serve on a Markham Fair committee must fully complete the Committee Member Registration Form including the signing and dating of the Waiver.
The onus to ensure Committee Members properly complete the Registration Form and pay the membership fee should be placed on the Chairperson of the relevant committee.
