Sangamon Auditorium Volunteer Association is currently accepting new volunteers for 2011-2012

The Sangamon Auditorium Volunteer Association is currently accepting new volunteers for the 2011-2012 schedule of events and performances at Sangamon Auditorium, UIS.

A dedicated, trained corps of over 280 volunteers, SAVA (Sangamon Auditorium Volunteer Association) members make up a team of ushers that help greet, tear tickets, hand out show programs and help ensure the safety and comfort of patrons attending performances and other events at Sangamon Auditorium and the UIS Studio Theatre. Volunteers also have opportunities to provide support, if interested and available, in the administrative office as needed assisting with marketing, community outreach and the Auditorium’s educational and family programs.

Speaking about the benefits of being a volunteer at Sangamon Auditorium, Carly Shank, director of audience and development and communication said, “Although it’s a wonderful way to support the university and the arts, it’s also great way to network and make social connections within the community. It’s the best way to get involved with our organization.”

Requirements and Expectations - Sangamon Auditorium Volunteers are requested to volunteer for at least three events a semester and required to attend at least one mandatory training session. There are still two training sessions that will be offered during the month of August on Saturday, August 20th, 10:00 AM-12:30 p.m. and Sunday, August 28th, 3:00-5:30 p.m. New and returning volunteers are only required to attend one of the sessions. Training sessions are held at Sangamon Auditorium. Those planning on attending are asked to RSVP by calling Mindy McCaffrey at the number below.
