In order for ESCFAN to deliver the various important elements of the membership, a number of sub-committees have been set up inside of the overall Committee structure.
These include: Digital Communications & Social Media, Events, Rules & Govenance and Memberships & Partnerships.
Beyond the heads of these sub-committees, ESCFAN members are welcome to submit proposals, feedback and volunteer applications to be part of the organisation.

This is currently headed by Danie Tregonning, with support from Tim Soltys and Tass Sgardelis.

The provision of club newsletters is also currently falling under its duties, and it has been responsible for the club logo re-design and re-branding.
The sub-committee is constantly reviewing the opportunities and also threats to ESCFAN, and a social-media-policy is in place to monitor and control posts to the online portals. Feedback and ideas are always appreciated.
This is currently staffed by all ESCFAN Committee, with a formal structure to be announced shortly. Volunteers from within the ESCFAN member base are very welcome to help with events on the day.
The sub-committee is tasked with the provision and marketing of events and social gatherings for ESCFAN members throughout the year across Australia and also at Eurovision.
