Volunteer at Festival
Join the SUAF Squad today! This festival is just like we said, for the people and by the people! While we may not have a whole lot of cash we have the earths greatest resource “HUMAN CAPITAL”. So join the squad and help us get the festival rolling in 2013!
SUAF SQUAD POSITIONS
Information Booth-Inform attendees about various programs, answer questions about festival, give location/general information and collect demographic/evaluation information. (Must work well with the public.)
Volunteer/Staff Respite Tent – Host/Hostess will be responsible for welcoming all volunteers to the festival, handing out volunteer shirts and food/drink coupons, providing snacks and pop/water to volunteers and maintaining and cleaning the tent area as needed. These jobs require folks who are friendly and outgoing.
Parking Control – Parking control volunteers will work with uniformed law enforcement officers to direct traffic to available festival parking lots and control access to the reserved & handicapped parking areas. Part of this job will require checking for legitimate parking passes and handicapped parking placards. Persons performing this duty must have good “people skills.” In addition, parking volunteers must be able to work in the sun and on their feet. This is not a glamorous job, but it is one of the most essential.
Festival Ambassador – This is a job for someone who doesn’t mind being on their feet and walking the Festival grounds, answering questions and giving Festival-goers a survey to take. The survey will help us gather demographic information for future fund-raising and sponsorship efforts and contact information for future marketing of the Festival.
Gate Ticket Takers/Access Attendants – As the saying goes, you only get one chance to make a first impression. As official SUAF greeters, ticket takers help make our first impression, so we’re looking for friendly individuals with a ready smile to staff each gate. Volunteers will be on their feet for several hours. Many of the festival events are free of charge, but not all. Some events are ticketed events. Further, this position calls for a gentle but firm attitude. No one is allowed entry to any ticketed event based on who they know, they must present a ticket or be on our MASTER VIP LIST. No exceptions.
Merchandise Table-Work the SUAF Merchandise booth selling merchandise for special guest and performing artist. The SUAF Merchandise table is not just for festival paraphernalia, but we also encourage our special guest and performing artist to supply the table with merchandise to be sold for them by festival volunteers. Each artist must fill out a Stock Sheet which indicates what they are submitting to be sold along with pricing. (Must be responsible and capable of basic math.)
Tear-Down Crew-Help return the grounds to its original state. Activities may include, but are not limited to: emptying trash/recycling bins, collecting tables/chairs, picking up litter and helping vendors/exhibitors load out. (Must be able to lift at least 20 lbs.). While this is not the most glamorous, or fun job, this is critical to the festivals long term success. The last impression is just as important as the first
