those who don't know, it works beautifully!)
At the end of
every year at general meeting we elect or nominate seven
board members. These board members finalize about 8 to 12
events and the budget for the events for the coming year. The
board creates committees of members for these events.
Depending on total no. of members and events there can be 5
to 10 members in each committee. Each SFVGA member family
becomes part of at least one committee. The committees are
responsible to organize and manage their assigned event.
This way every family members gets a chance to host and work
along with other committee members for one event and attend
and enjoy the remaining events in the year. The board
provides help and liaison to each event committee. This is
a short and rough description. Please see the BYLAWS for details.
SFVGA membership is available to anyone who is
referred by an existing member. You can be a member any time of the year. Membership is valid for the current calendar year. Please fill out Membership Application and Waiver of Liability Form and mail it to:

Current Members are
requested to be active to recruit new members to have their
families take full advantage of our culture, food,
festivals, friendship and fun that we are enjoying.
