90 minutes prior to the start of an event until 30 minutes after it begins, and again during intermission.
Volunteer ushers must become knowledgeable about A&L programs and be able to communicate effectively and
courteously with A&L patrons. Neat appearance and dependability are essential, as is the ability to stand for
90 minutes at a time. Ushers are asked to provide their own work clothes: black (no denim) pants or skirt and
a white collared shirt. Bilingual Spanish/English is a plus. Evening and weekend hours.
