Burning Flipside has an extensive all-volunteer organization that handles event operations, organizes year-round activities, and discusses issues of interest to the local Burner community.
If you picture a tree, Austin Artistic Reconstruction, LLC, or AAR, is at the base of the tree. This is the board of directors of the company that is the legal entity that signs contracts.
One branch coming from that trunk, the Combustion Chamber, or CC, holds open meetings every other week, and acts as an advisory body to AAR, and as a communications channel between AAR and the community at large.
Another set of branches is the the Areas and Departments: Ten areas handle broad aspects of event and year-round operations, and each Area is further subdivided into Departments. Areas are led by Area Facilitators (AFs), and Departments are led by Leads.
