Volunteer for Downtown After 5: June 21, 2013
May was awesome, June DTA5 will rock out even harder. We are excited for the great line up of music including The Hermit Kings and headliners Shonna Tucker & Eye Candy.
Please note the start time for your shift and show up a couple of minutes early if possible to get checked in. The volunteer check-in tent will be located near the top of Lexington Ave and will clearly be labeled with a Volunteer Check-in banner. Make sure you stop by to get your t-shirt, thank-you drink tokens and specific area of volunteering.The event time is from 5pm until 9pm, but your individual shift may be a different timeframe. You will receive a confirmation email the weekend before the event with check-in times and other information.
If you have done this for years, I know where you like to work and will be as accommodating as possible. Please remember that the ADA has multiple wonderful volunteers and we want everyone to have a shot at different tasks in order to meet new people and have a fresh experience.
Please note that the only beers given out with no cash payment in return are the ones that are in exchange for an ADA token. No beers should be handed out to staff, board or volunteers without the exchange of a token (…..everyone knows this and can be directed to me if there is a problem). Also, law enforcement is very serious about shutting down our sales license for volunteers drinking on the job or intoxicated while working. Feel free to try a beer before your shift and afterwards, but there will be no drinking while on shift, behind tents, etc. Because of the seriousness of police scrutiny we ask everyone to comply.
Check out our 2013 Volunteer Perks:
You will receive 3 drink tickets for every volunteer shift you work this year. In addition, if you work
1-2 SHIFTS…you will receive a free DA5 2012 season T-shirt
3 SHIFTS…you will receive the t-shirt, 1 pint glass and an invitation to the 2013 Volunteer Appreciation Party in November

4 or More SHIFTS...including one event other than DTA5 or Oktoberfest you will receive everything above plus two VIP passes to the November Volunteer Appreciation Party.
So how does this thing work?
Simple… Two to three weeks before each event, you will receive an invitation from Eventbrite (just like this one!) to volunteer for the next event. Just follow the directions to register yourself as an Eventbrite user (you may have already done this to attend an event in the past. If so, simply log on and continue.)
If you wish to volunteer, follow the directions to REGISTER. You will be asked to check your preferred shifts and volunteer position. Once you finish, and register, you will receive a confirmation email from Eventbrite, which will allow you to print your ticket. Each person wishing to volunteer will need to complete this step. You may register up to two people from the same invitation. About a week prior to the event you will receive a confirmation email from the volunteer coordinator with your specific shift and volunteer job.
VERY IMPORTANT…YOU MUST PRINT THIS TICKET AND BRING IT WITH YOU!
If you have trouble printing the ticket, please contact the ADA Office at info@AshevilleDowntown.org
When you come to the volunteer check in tent at the beginning of your shift, we will scan your tickets with our very-smart phones and VOILA! Your shift is counted towards our volunteer perks!
ATTN other very-smart phone users…you may also download the ticket onto your phone, where we can then scan your phone. Just make sure we can see the bar code from the ticket.
