CMA is once again looking for top-notch volunteers to help during 2011 CMA Music Festival which will be held Thursday through Sunday, June 9-12, in Downtown Nashville. This marks the second year the trade association has asked the citizens of Middle Tennessee and beyond to help the Nashville community by serving as ambassadors during the event. Half of the net proceeds from 2011 CMA Music Festival will be donated to support music education in Metro Nashville Public Schools through CMA’s Keep the Music Playing program.
Anyone interested in volunteering can attend CMA’s Volunteer Fair from 4:00-7:00 PM/CT, Thursday, April 7 or 10:00 AM-2:00 PM/CT, Saturday, April 9 at the CMA office at One Music Circle S., Nashville (TN, 37203) to fill out an application and learn more about the volunteer opportunities. Those who cannot attend the Volunteer Fair may also submit an application online at CMAfest.com.
There are some requirements to volunteer: You must be at least 18-years-old, in good physical health, and able to work a minimum of two days during the Festival. Many of the jobs require standing for long periods, extensive walking, some light lifting, and outside duties in the heat (and possible rain). Jobs range from manning the information booths, to handing out product samples, to keeping the photo lines running smoothly. Some posts require a valid Tennessee driver license. Volunteers are also needed for the CMA Music Festival kick-off events on Wednesday, June 8. CMA will provide volunteers parking, event T-shirts, catering during working hours, and two tickets to one of the nightly shows at LP Field.
