SABHF Seeking Board Members

Is Blues one of your passions?  Do you have two to three hours a week to commit to advancing the awareness of Blues Music?  Have you always wanted to work behind the scenes?     

The Southern Arizona Blues Heritage Foundation has board seats available and we are recruiting for members now.  

What kind of skills do you have to  bring to the table?  Are you a people person?  Is organization or accounting your thing?  How about social media?  Would you like to head up our festival fundraisers or organize member jams around town?  Get into working with young people?  Blues in the Schools is another great way to get involved through SABHF.  

Interested?  Please submit your Blues/Volunteer resume along with a one page narrative explaining why you are applying to the board and what skills/interests you will bring.
