EAL/LA is a primarily volunteer-run organization. Our best resource is our people, and we'd love to have you involved. There are so many ways to get involved and volunteer with our team. Check out these options and let us know below how you'd like to help support our team!
Volunteer for an Event
EAL/LA holds about one event a month. These events require volunteers for set up, check in and various other duties. Volunteering is a great way to attend events while getting a glimpse behind-the-scenes.
Join a Committee
EAL/LA has three committees: Programming, Development, and Marketing and Communications. The Programming Committee produces our events by scheduling the date, finding venues, and reaching potential speakers. The Development Committee tackles our funding by completing grant applications and producing fundraisers. The Marketing and Communications works directly with members to promote EAL/LA's programming and events through social media, newsletters and more. Committees are open to all members and we welcome anyone to attend a meeting to help plan an event, pitch in with fundraising, or contribute to marketing strategy. Committee meetings occur once a month.
Become a Leader
If you're looking for a role with more responsibility and an in depth look at non-profit arts, consider running for an empty seat on our Leadership Council. Elections for At-Large Members and Leadership Council seats occur once a year. To learn about the roles of leadership, visit our Leadership Council page.
