Maryland Pastel Society volunteers

Get Involved!

Would you like to become more involved with the society? Learn about a few ways you can help.

We know you enjoy the many opportunities and programs available to you through the MPS, but we need your help to succeed. We are actively seeking people who would be interested in helping us organize an education committee, coordinate local signature member shows, coordinate a paint out, critique group or assist in other support capacities. You don't need to make any long-term commitments -- a one-time offer to help with a task would be gratefully received. If you have knowledge, talent, and interest in any of these areas -- or just the desire to contribute! -- please contact any of your MPS Board members: we'd truly love to hear from you.

Here are some ideas:
Publicity Chair - Are you pretty good at social media? MPS has a pretty substantial group of Facebook followers, and we're looking for someone to post some news every now and then.

Writers - You don't have to be an expert. If you enjoy writing or just like to share small news items, our newsletter editor would love to meet you. A little experience with your high school or college newspaper would sweeten the deal!

Hospitality - Our current hospitality chair has taken on the job normally managed by two members. This is a great way to help out!

An Exhibition Co-Chair - Our exhibition chair is creative and has been finding terrific venues for MPS shows. Step in as a co-chair for one of our shows and you will have an opportunity to learn from on of the best! Susan Gleason, our current Exhibition Chair can show you the ropes. She'll share some of her best strategies for making a show shine!

SOP Chair for 2019 - By mid-2018 we'll need a volunteer to begin organizing a committee for the 2019 Shades of Pastel exhibition. It's a big responsibility, but what a way to meet people and make connections! You need to have good organizational and communications skills, attend quarterly MPS board meetings, and work closely with the board. This is one of the most fulfilling roles in our society. Interested? Contact Mary Boeh.
