Please visit the new page to apply.
We're looking for a great volunteer, or two, to help us with fund development. It takes money to build our award winning floats, and we would love to have new members join our fund development team and coordinate our events, as a part of our all-volunteer LCFTRA community!
We Design, Research, Engineer, Art, and Make. It takes all that, and more, but that DREAM is at our core, and is what allows the magic to happen. It is also an important symbiotic relationship across our collective disciplines. It does no good for all to be of one discipline or another (that would just be a competitive environment where nothing is achieved). Likewise, it does no good to all be islands of specialty talents with no communication or respect for the next. True symbiosis is the collective respect that each talent and discipline has for the next. For you Star Trek (r) fans, sure, this sounds much like the "Borg" - only without the universe domination bender they were on. Anyone that wants to talk and debate "Trek" anytime, let’s chat - I have a basement full of insider stories.
Those familiar with Prototyping, Product Design and even aspects of 6-SIGMA, can appreciate this process and how it must all interrelate. This extends to all of our major process 'buckets’: Construction, Administration, Fundraising, Public Relations. So don’t be bashful - your skillset may not be wielding a torch; but I assure you, whatever your skillset, it has a home here.The short of it is: we have a rockin’ team of unique talent. If the above clicks with you, or you think it clicks with someone you know -or even meet; if you feel the privilege and honor of being one of a small group of self-built builders is for you - in short, if you fancy yourself a DREAMer...well, our collective (yes, more Star Trek (r)) wants to hear from you!
Our organization has thrived for more than forty years and has consistently produced award winning floats that navigate Colorado Blvd. on New Year's Day as a part of America’s celebration.
We are fresh off the honor of winning the prestigious Crown City Innovator Award that is usually given to professional builders. And now, the La Canada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association is already hard at work on the float that will be part of the 2023 Rose Parade.
There is an old saying that it takes a village, and that has never been truer than now! And that is where we need you to become a part of our all-volunteer LCFTRA community!
