The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., has planned a set of upcoming volunteer interest meetings to welcome more members to its volunteer team. Volunteer roles include opportunities with guided tours and programs, exhibitions and collections, caring for CBMM’s grounds and gardens, on-the-water and dockside with its Floating Fleet and working Shipyard, and more.
Scheduled for Saturday, July 16, from noon–1pm; 2–3pm on Tuesday, Sept. 13; and again from noon–1pm on Saturday, Nov. 12, the public is invited to learn more about how they can participate in the Chesapeake Bay region’s communities with CBMM in a variety of roles.
Through behind-the-scenes and public-facing work, CBMM volunteers contribute their time, talents, and experience to help our guests make personal connections to the history, environment, and culture of the Chesapeake. These virtual meetings are designed for adults and teens interested in joining CBMM’s volunteer team.
CBMM’s Volunteer Program engages community members to participate in its mission to make the Chesapeake Bay available and accessible to people of all backgrounds and abilities. CBMM fosters a collaborative environment where volunteers are empowered to participate and grow and is committed to making volunteering and community participation accessible to people of all backgrounds and experiences.
“Volunteering is one of the many ways that you can participate in your community and make a difference,” said CBMM’s Volunteer & Education Manager Concetta Gibson. “Interest Meetings are a great way to learn about CBMM and see if we’re a good fit for your volunteer experience. Whether you’d like to meet new people, pursue your interests and hobbies, or learn new skills, there can be a place for you here.”
