MassJam is a massive undertaking, and requires a huge number of volunteers to be successful. There will be lots of opportunities for volunteers to get involved. Each participating council has appointed a representative to the steering committee.

Steering Committee

Key volunteers from participating councils collaborate together for over two years before MassJam to organize the event. Participating councils appoint a volunteer to be a representative member on the committee and other key volunteers are recruited by the co-chairs to organize specific areas.
