Volunteer

Opportunities to get involved

The TCAGO is a volunteer organization, and the work is divided between the board of directors and committees. Consider how you can become involved in an organization that emphasizes collaboration, collegiality, education, professional resources, artistic programming, and hospitality.

Positions of leadership on the board of directors provide opportunities for members to meet and make decisions that affect the ongoing work of the guild. Chairing one of the many committees or joining a committee is a good way to meet people and make a contribution to TCAGO. Choose an area that interests you and contact the Dean or a committee chair to find out more.

Member and non-member opportunities:

  • Hospitality – Serve refreshments at a TCAGO event, assist with preparation and/or clean-up or greet at a TCAGO event.
