Docent Updates

Hello Docents,


This is an email reminder that there is docent training tomorrow, November 5 at 10:30 am. We will meet in the Gates Library to go over the agenda and questions you may have. Then, we will move to the Haub Family Galleries for our last training over the Haub Family Collection of Western American Art. This training will be recorded like the other two trainings. All three trainings will be available to view online early next week.


Also, there are a handful of docents who still haven’t signed up for a docent shift or volunteer shift for the Gala or Grand Opening. Please take the time to look at your schedule and donate an additional 4 or 5 hours of volunteer service to TAM. Your help is greatly appreciated and it is noticed by me, the staff, and museum visitors!


I need a few docents to lead the following tours, please let me know if you’re interested.
