I understand that as a Krew member, I represent the Kate Wolf Music Festival and will act in a manner that reflects positively on the event.3. I promise to take to my work an attitude of open mindedness, to be willing to be trained for it, & to bring to it my interest & attention. I believe my attitude toward Krew work should be professional. I believe that I have an obligation to my work, to those who direct it, to my colleagues, & to the public.Being eager to contribute all that I can to the goals of the festival, I accept this code of ethics, to be followed carefully & cheerfully.
