TAM Docents: New Docent Check List Revised
I want to first thank those docents who came to today’s training. It was marvelous hearing from Flora Book herself about the jewelry in the George and Mary Davis Gallery. It really came alive for me and I know it did for others too.
I have attached a copy of the New Docent Check List for the new docents (if you didn’t graduate with a class, consider yourself a new docent where this list is concerned). I also wanted all current docents to see what is on the list so you will know what to expect to hear, questions wise, from the new docents on shadow shifts. If you have any questions, please let me know. New Docents: Please make sure to go through the list and get a completed copy to me along with the date and your name written on it so that I can attach it to your file. Meanwhile, if there are any other changes that anyone sees could be made, I am still taking input.
