Volunteer News

Fall 2018 ImageThe Mary B. Martin School of the Arts has put together another diverse   season of events and we invite you to get very close to the action by volunteering with us. 

Grab your handful of programs and start greeting our patrons and have your flashlight ready to help with late seating. Then slip into your reserved seat to see the event for free.

This fall we have three films, two concerts and one stage play that will require marketing distribution, ushering and box office help, and three other visual arts events that will also require marketing assistance.

We know that we have the best squad of volunteers around, and between our loyal, experienced volunteers and the new ones who will jump in. Thank You!

We look forward to seeing those who have worked with us for years, as well as welcoming the new volunteers onto the team.

Get close to the action it’s the only place to be and jump in with whatever time or talents you can offer us. There is something for every skill and level of commitment. Event Volunteers such as, box office staff and ushers, along with Marketing Materials Distribution are central to our operations. But from time to time, we also need Social Media and Lobby Activities Volunteers and help with transporting artists and other hospitality essentials. Or you can join us in the office for some general office needs. Let us tailor our tasks to your interests and availability.

Whether you are a seasoned Mary B. Martin School of the Arts volunteer, a new community member or a student at ETSU just looking for adventure please give us a chance to include you on our team. For descriptions of the various volunteer jobs click here.

 MARKETING MATERIALS DISTRIBUTION

adorantes on bikesDistributing posters in the community is an essential part of our marketing effort. We have organized routes with specific businesses and locations that have agreed to put up our posters. We cover Johnson City, Jonesborough, Elizabethton and Kingsport. Most poster runs take about two hours of your time, and are best done with two people in the vehicle.

Most volunteers make the run in a car, but Michael and Joy Adorante, at left, like to get some exercise at the same time!


Each poster run earns two complimentary tickets to the performance of your choice.

If interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Pamela Adolphi Assistant Director, Mary B. Martin School of the Arts and Facility/General Manager, Martin Center for the Arts at adolphi@etsu.edu or 423-439-8333.


ANNUAL VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION CELEBRATION

Every year we celebrate our volunteers with a special event to thank them for their help during our season. This event gives us a little time to visit and chat with each other, hand out some 'party favors' as a token of our appreciation, and enjoy food and entertainment. Some of the events we have all gotten together for in past years are a barbecue and dance, a showcase of campus arts performances, a poetry reading and dessert reception, catered dinners with musical and theatrical entertainment and 2018's update on the Martin Center for the Arts.

Anyone who has volunteered at all in the 2018-2019 season will be sent an email invitation as the time approaches in spring 2019 for our next annual celebration.
