Employment & Volunteer Opportunities
There are no openings at this time.
Whether behind the scenes or in the Museum galleries, volunteers are integral to the success of BMAC. Volunteer hours are flexible, and training is provided when necessary. If you are interested in any of the opportunities described below, please contact Operations Manager Teta Hilsdon at 802-257-0124, ext. 101 or email@example.com.
GALLERY GREETERS play a vital role in shaping the visitor’s experience of BMAC, as they are very often the only Museum personnel with whom a visitor will interact. Gallery greeters work regular or occasional shifts on weekdays when BMAC is open to the public. They work at the front desk, where they welcome visitors and handle admission, Gift Shop sales, and general inquiries. This is a great opportunity for a friendly, responsible “people-person.”
DOCENTS work closely with BMAC’s Education Curator in planning and leading guided group tours to BMAC. Docents receive training in Visual Thinking Strategies, an approach to facilitating engagement with visual art that fosters critical thinking and literacy skills.
EVENT VOLUNTEERS play an indispensable role in the successful execution of BMAC’s events, ranging from opening receptions and other events that take place at the Museum to major fundraisers held off site (e.g., Collegiate A Cappella Benefit Concert; Wine, Song, and Art Auction). Event volunteers assist with set up, clean up, decorations, food service, crowd management, artwork security, and much more.
PRODUCTION VOLUNTEERS help with the installation and de-installation of exhibits, often working closely with artists and curators, as well as with the general maintenance of BMAC’s historic building and grounds. Experience with art installation, painting, carpentry, and power tools is helpful.
OFFICE VOLUNTEERS work closely with BMAC’s administrative staff and help with filing, mailings, organizing the BMAC archives, and much more. Hours are very flexible. There’s never a shortage of work to be done, and we’re always grateful for the help!
ADVISORY COMMITTEES: A great deal of the planning, implementation, and evaluation of BMAC activities, including our exhibits, events, marketing, and fundraising activities, is carried out by advisory committees made up of volunteers working hand-in-hand with BMAC staff. Advisory committees are formed and meet as needs dictate. If you have expertise, experience, or just a willingness to help out that you think would be useful to BMAC, please let us know. There just might be an advisory committee for you.
