HONOURING VOLUNTEERS AT MUSEUM LONDON

The lifeblood of Museum London is its people and at the Museum volunteers have unique and special roles to play. They offer our organization their skills, their commitment, and their caring. By being involved throughout the Museum in a myriad of capacities, they enable visitors of all ages to engage in exciting and satisfying experiences. Through their dedication and enthusiasm, volunteers at Museum London help enhance the high quality programs and offerings for which the Museum is so well regarded.

In recognition of the tremendous work of volunteers throughout all facets of the Museum, and of the growth in volunteer involvement at Museum London, the Board has chosen to establish three annual Volunteer Awards. These awards give the Museum a chance to celebrate and show our appreciation of highly dedicated and energetic volunteers. Another initiative to act as an enhancement to our Volunteer Recognition opportunities this year is our annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon to be held during National Volunteer Week in April of this year.

Eligibility for the Volunteer Awards, and the opportunity to nominate, are open and inclusive. The nominating and selection process outlined here are meant to foster a large number of applications, and to ensure that three deserving individuals are selected and recognized at the Annual General Meeting of the Museum in April. It is the Board’s wish that this process will demonstrate how Museum London and the community-at-large values our volunteers, their creativity, leadership, commitment to art and heritage, and wants to celebrate their importance and contribution.
