The Bellevue Chamber Chorus thrives with the support of volunteers. Above and beyond the rehearsing and singing, there are many tasks that must be accomplished for our chorus to share musical experiences. Front office and backstage support at performances, working on the board, marketing, helping manage extra events, ...; the list of needs is substantial.
The volunteering section of this site makes it easier to engage with the chorus and find a volunteer position that works for you. Many of the tasks are one-time and not long of duration, so there is usually something that will fit your availability.
The first thing you'll want to do is register on the site. From the same menu as this FAQ, choose 'Register to Volunteer'. Fill out your basic information - name, email, and optionally telephone number so we can contact you. Pick a username and password as well. Then read our short 'Terms' document and check the checkbox to indicate your agreement. Finally, click on the 'Register' button to register as a volunteer on the site.
Privacy Statement: The Bellevue Chamber Chorus will only use your contact information for the express purpose of coordinating volunteer tasks. We will not share your information with any third party, nor for any other purpose.
Next you'll want to log in and review the current volunteering opportunities, which can be found at 'Volunteering/Opportunities' on the top menu. You can then see the list of current volunteer opportunities to find the one(s) that work for you. For each opportunity listed, you can see the type of task, the event and date, and the number of positions still open for that task. To see more information about a task, click on its name.
The task page shows more detail - a description, the date and time, as well as a list of currently assigned volunteers, if any.
On the task description page, you can click on the 'Volunteer' link under 'Commitments' to add your name for this task. Your username will be added to the list under 'Commitments'. Once you have done this, your volunteer coordinator will be able to contact you with further information.
When you have finished a task, you can use the 'Log Effort' link to the right of your listed commitment to log the hours you actually spent on the task. Besides identifying your contribution, this also allows us to validate that our estimate of the time was appropriate.
