Who can Volunteer?
Students, emerging professionals, or professionals who work at small museums, furloughed museum professionals, laid off museum professionals, and those cannot afford to attend the conference because of a limited budget may apply to be volunteers.
Volunteers are selected on a first-come, first-serve basis to fill specific volunteer positions. We try to ensure that as many of the graduate programs in the region as possible are represented among our conference volunteers.
Applicants will be evaluated and selected by the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums.
What benefits do I receive as a volunteer?
Volunteers for MAAM’s 2021 virtual portion of the conference will receive free access to the virtual sessions.
In-person volunteers can attend MAAM for $25 per day to cover food and beverage. Volunteers are scheduled in 1-2 hour shifts or in alignment with MAAM special events.
When applying, be sure to have your availability ready for the dates of October 4-7, 2021. View the preliminary program for more information on the schedule: https://tinyurl.com/prelimMAAM2021
Submit this form no later than September 24, 2021. A MAAM representative will contact you in mid-September about the status of your application – in the meantime, please feel free to contact email@example.com with any questions.
Applying for volunteer positions does not guarantee your access to the Annual Meeting.
