Volunteer for the AFA
AFA Board of Directors: Over the years, the AFA has been fortunate to have a solid and dedicated group of volunteers serving on the Board of Directors. Master artists, scholars, leaders in tourism, museum and library directors, musicians, and arts education specialists contribute to ensuring that the AFA fulfills the mission of the organization and remains fiscally responsible.
Event and program hosting: When the AFA comes to your community, we often need ambassadors to take care of friendly details such as putting together a bag of local brochures/ maps, etc., helping with check-in; making name tags, etc. That allows staff to take care of last minute details, work on presentations, or "troubleshoot" to take care of unexpected changes.
Booth/ Exhibit set up and staffing: Whenever the AFA is setting up an exhibit at a museum or a booth at a festival, an extra pair of hands is always valuable. Setting up is often strenuous work and we do pay young people and additional labor to help on occasion I can also use a break when we have a booth, so that I can visit with other organizations and artists at the event and that is just taking time to spend an hour or two in a chair greeting the public and making sales.
