Savvy not-for-profit organizations know that a big reason for their success is due to the time and talents of a host of volunteers. Guelph Arts Council has been fortunate to have had many wonderful volunteers over the years – individuals who have given so much to help our arts community thrive. We are tremendously grateful for all of our volunteers.
As GAC continues to work hard to re-energize this year, we are thrilled to see more volunteers coming on board and long-time volunteers renewing their commitments.
One of our super volunteers is Jay Wilson, who has been helping us connect directly with our members. “I attended the GAC annual general meeting in May and liked the changes I saw happening. An arts council is only as strong as the members who support it, so I decided to support GAC, not only through my membership but also by donating some time. If I really want a strong arts council, it’s up to me (us) to make it so. I believe in grassroots support, so I’ve been helping by engaging members, renewing memberships and getting feedback for GAC. Talking with fellow artists is really enjoyable and informative.” Jay owns Pandora’s Sox, a puppet and entertainment company in Guelph.
GAC needs you, too! If you’re interested in getting involved by volunteering with us, we have a number of volunteer positions available presently, including working with our Resource Development Committee (fundraising/events), assisting with research and updating of our new events listing on the website, community connectors, and more. Fill out our volunteer application form on the website today to get started. We’d love to have you in involved!
