Concert Volunteer Kick-off & Orientation

Please mark your calendars for Monday September 25th for our annual volunteer welcome kickoff and orientation. This is your chance to:

  • Get priority sign-up for your concert dates
  • Attend new volunteer orientation (required for new volunteers)
  • Learn about roles and assignments      
  • Get your 2017 volunteer handbook and volunteer form
  • Meet lead volunteers and HCA staff 
  • Enjoy snacks and refreshments
  • Bring friends and meet other volunteers

New volunteers will arrive first, and returning volunteers will arrive a bit later:

  • 6:15pm New volunteer arrival and orientation
  • Community Room 207 (upstairs 2nd floor)

New volunteers who have not worked a concert will receive an orientation on the building, policies, and volunteer jobs. This is required for all new concert volunteers. Returning volunteers are welcome to attend for a refresher or to help support and welcome new volunteers.

Returning volunteers:

  • 7:00pm Returning (and new) volunteer sign up and season overview
  • Community Room 207 (upstairs 2nd floor)

There will be a brief overview of the concerts and highlights of this season and sign ups will be taken for preferred concert dates. Priority scheduling will be given to registrations at the kickoff, and all attendees will be guaranteed an ushering slot. Information will also be given on other volunteering opportunities including May Day on Main and Art from the Attic. Attendance is strongly encouraged. See below if you’re unable to attend.

How do I RSVP?
Please email Aaron Wulff at awulff@Hopkinsmn.com that you will be attending and what time you’ll be arriving (6:15 for new volunteers, 7:00 for returning)

 What if I’m a new volunteer and can’t make it?
New volunteers are required to attend orientation that night in order to work concerts. Because we have limited spots, this is an important requirement. If you’re unable to attend let us know, and we may be able to schedule an alternate time with you.

What if I’m a returning volunteer and can’t make it?
Sign-ups are on a first come basis and priority will be given to those who attend registration night. So while attendance for returning volunteers isn’t required, your choices for dates may be limited. We’ll fill any remaining spots after September 25th based on seniority and availability. Let us know you’ll be unable to attend in your RSVP and we’ll provide a form for you to return after the kickoff.

I’m not interested in concert volunteering, do I still need to come?
Although the event is primarily focused on concert volunteering, anyone is welcome to come to partake in the building tour and orientation as well as snacks!

We appreciate all you do and look forward to seeing you for a great season!
