What is the difference between a general volunteer and a technical volunteer?

General volunteers have above all a good attitude, willingness, and should be professional and friendly. From behind the scenes roles for the shy and retiring, to out-front-with-the-public roles for the outgoing and adaptable person, general volunteer jobs are many and varied. From tickets to ushering, from roady work to site set-up, you can tell us whether you work better with the public or on a team responsible for making the event work. You can tell us whether you work best sitting or standing, moving and hauling, schmoozing or tallying and and we will work to put you where you do best and will have the most fun.

Technical volunteers have background or experience in stage productions, stage management, backstage chaos and support, sound, instruments, lighting, especially in live music. These volunteers are comfortable with time management, are adaptable to multiple situations in a hectic environment, are able to communicate effectively in a professional and friendly manner, can be be professional around Artists, Celebrities and Record Company executives, and must be responsible, courteous and have an excellent attitude. They have skills in the controlled chaos and excitement of entertainment production and are proud of it. We welcome them!
