Sphere Leads oversee four teams, each of which will include a variety of Departments that are managed by a Coordinator or two. An additional team, Finance and Purchasing, is currently managed entirely by the FirePony Creative Society board of directors.

Each Department Coordinator will be encouraged to recruit volunteers to help fulfill their team’s responsibilities. We expect that many of the Coordinators will be working closely with Coordinators both within their Sphere and within other Spheres. For instance, Burning Arts, while nestled within the Arts and Community Sphere, will inevitably work closely with the Fire Safety team.

Please take a look at the list below, and if you’d like to join the 2018 team, please let us know here. While some of these Coordinator roles have been filled, we’re interested in what YOU want to do!
