The Redlands Eisteddfod Inc., is an organisation made up totally of volunteers.  The Executive Committee consists of an elected President, Vice President, Secretary,and Treasurer.  In addition to this committee are the elected Sub-Committees of Music, Dance and Speech and Drama, each having an elected Convenor.  All Committee members are elected by financial voting members of the organisation.  Each of these Committee members has many years of experience in their respective areas and are well trusted and liked members of the community in general.  Each member has a 'Blue Card' and a multitude of positive references.  In addition to Volunteer 'Blue Cards' many have Employer 'Blue Cards' as well,  as they are teachers in their field of expertise.
