Volunteers needed for the March membership drive!

From VPR's Ty Robertson:

Whether you’re a native Vermonter, long-time resident or new to the area, volunteering at VPR is a great way to get to know your fellow listeners. You’ll also enjoy getting to meet the on-air and support staff, and an occasional celebrity.

Our greatest need for volunteers comes during the on-air membership drives. Volunteers from around the state come to the Colchester studio to help answer phones and take pledge information. The only requirements are a degree of comfort with the computer and a pleasant phone manner. Typically a volunteer will come in for several hours at a time as their schedule allows. VPR welcomes business groups and community organizations to come help out and enjoy the fun. The busiest times of the day are from 6-9 am and 3-7 pm on the weekdays and during certain popular weekend programs, like Car Talk and Wait, Wait...Don’t Tell Me. Often volunteers from far away will arrange to stay overnight with friends in the Burlington area or plan to help out on a weekend day and make a day-long adventure of it. And, of course, we feed you like there's no tomorrow! Here are the pledge drive dates and times:

March 11-13 and March 16-20:
6-9 am9 to noon
3-7 pm

Saturday, March 14:
8 to noon
noon- 5:15 pm

I still need volunteers for all early morning and late afternoon. Visit this link to sign up for a shift. Click on the link and enter your email address. You'll get an email back from me with a link that says "Sign Up Now/Learn More." Click on that link and you will be taken to the pledge drive calendar where you can sign up for available shifts. Hope to see you there!
