Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in Becoming a Volunteer?

The Performing Arts Volunteer Association (PAVA) has about 200 members who serve as floor managers and ushers at events. These dedicated volunteers are trained in customer service skills and safety and security measures such as emergency evacuation procedures. They are proud supporters of the UIS PAC’s mission to present high quality professional arts entertainment to Springfield and the surrounding region.

Interested applicants receive thorough training on customer service, event details, and how to sign-up for shows. New usher training is offered on occasion throughout the calendar year. If you are interested in learning more, please fill out the volunteer interest form and we will contact you when new volunteer training is scheduled.

For more information, contact Betsy O’Brien at eobri4@uis.edu or (217) 206-8287.
