Call for Volunteers for Building Museums 2018

Call for Volunteers:
The Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums (MAAM) has a number of volunteer opportunities for individuals to assist with its upcoming Building Museums Symposium, which will be held March 9th-11th in Philadelphia, PA. In exchange, volunteers receive significantly reduced conference registration ($100). Students and emerging professionals or professionals in need (those who work at small museums and cannot afford to attend the conference because of a limited budget) may apply. 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.

Volunteer positions include:

Assisting with check-in and registration at the conference and at conference events (e.g. Opening Reception, Saturday Reception)
Distributing and collecting session evaluations
Photographing various events at the conference

To apply to be a volunteer, please send the following to

  • Your resume
  • A brief statement of interest outlining your reasons for wanting to attend the conference
  • Your preferred volunteer position(s) – see above (Please note if you have photography experience)
  • The conference sessions that you are most interested in attending. The preliminary program can be found here: 2018 Building Museums Program and Registration FINAL
