Help wanted: Volunteers to plan concert series

posted in: News

This fall will mark the tenth anniversary season of Alameda’s Live @ the Library concert series. This highly successful set of events brings well-known musical artists to the Alameda Main Library for three separate concerts, usually held in September, October and November. New volunteers are needed to help both plan and staff the event.

New volunteers will learn the ropes from veteran committee members during the fall 2018 concert series so they’ll be ready to take full responsibility in 2019.

The following positions need to be filled:
• Support manager: manages the business details of the concerts, such as insurance, licenses, and tax forms; rents pianos; plans refreshments; coordinates volunteers; arranges for photo or
video coverage of the concerts. Time commitment: June to November.
• Ticket manager: Orders and distributes tickets to sales points; tracks sales on a spreadsheet;
delivers cash and checks to FAL treasurer; manages ticket collection at each concert. Time
commitment: July to December.
• Publicity: Coordinates with FAL Communication Committee to publicize events; works with
designer and printer on posters, banners and direct mail. Time commitment: June to November.
• Raffle chair: Solicit raffle items, publicize, sell tickets.
