The Alliance Française French Film FestivalMelbourne Team
Volunteers and staff are expected to work together for the benefit of the AFM. Volunteers will be under the direction of the AFM and will not represent the AFM outside of the directions provided. Once you have made a commitment to the AFM, we depend on you to follow through with this commitment. Essentially, you become an integral part of the AFM team.
As such, you represent the AFM to both patrons and the public at large, and it is important to portray a positive image. All volunteers with the AFM are expected to:
• At all times exhibit a positive and friendly approach with the purpose of ensuring the public, guests, staff and volunteers have an enjoyable and memorable experience. • Be sensitive to diversity of artists and fellow volunteers. • Partake of no alcohol while on a shift and do not report for duty while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. • Show up on time and dressed appropriately and wear the T-shirts provided (when applicable) for the schedule duty/event given.• Contact the volunteers’ coordinator immediately when you must cancel a scheduled shift due to an unforeseen emergency. • Stay through your entire shift. If these commitments are not met, it may result in the termination of a volunteer position.
In return, the staff members of the AFM make a commitment to:
• Listen to and address volunteers’ concerns, problems and issues.• Treat volunteers with respect and courtesy. • Keep volunteers informed about relevant event changes. • Provide volunteers with a safe atmosphere in which to volunteer. • Adequately insure volunteers for the duration of each shift they work with the event.• Provide volunteers with necessary training opportunities. • Appreciate volunteers for their contributions to our association.
