Membership

We invite you to join with us

The Guild provides a rich variety of opportunities to support the Eugene Symphony and to enjoy the company of other dedicated community volunteers.  Active members are expected to serve on one or more committees during the year, either filling board positions, organizing and co-hosting small events, and/or staffing large public events.  Sustaining members are valued for their past and current service, as well as their wisdom, guidance, and companionship.

General information about joining the Guild appears below.  If you have additional questions, please contact Nancy Holloman, Membership Chair at 541-228-1805 or by e-mail at nmholloman@gmail.com.

Dues

New members and renewing active members dues are $40 per year.  Active members are responsible for selling a limited number of tickets to the Guild’s public events, and serve on one or more committees as a membership commitment.

Membership dues are tax deductible.

Volunteer Opportunities

Guild members can volunteer by serving on fundraising committees, a variety of  board positions, and/or receptionists in the Eugene Symphony Association office.  Members who volunteer to serve as receptionists commit to regular half-day shifts, or offer to substitute as needed.   Members offer a friendly welcome to office visitors, help the staff with filing, calling, data entry, mailings, and other projects as they arise.

Members also provide usher assistance for the Youth Concerts held in fall and winter when thousands of school children from schools from the region arrive at the Hult Center for each performance.

Meetings

General meetings are held monthly.  Meetings are usually coffees but may include luncheons and/or brunches. There is often a guest musician from the Symphony, a guest speaker, and a brief business meeting with reports on upcoming activities.  We start our year in September.  We end the year with our Annual Meeting in June.  At this meeting, we elect new officers and present the Symphony Association representatives with our check representing the fruits of our labors during the past year.

A number of interest groups meet monthly in members’ homes to share a common interest in books, travel, bridge, as well meeting for pre-concert dining on Symphony performance evenings.  Check the Calendar for details of upcoming meetings
