Hi from Ottawa,
I'm chiming in a bit late but thought I'd share some ideas from our local
We're a pretty big dance (attendance approx. 100-110 per evening).
We let the following people in for free:
-Floor manager (overseeing the whole night)
-Sound volunteer (helps our sound man with set up and tear down)
-One other volunteer that helps with set up and tear down.
All other volunteers pay for entry. This includes:
-All board/committee members
-Volunteer responsible for snacks
-Volunteers who welcome/help make sure shoes are clean (issue at our hall)
-Door/entry volunteers (2 people from 7-8pm, 2 people for dances 1-2, 2
people for dances 3-4, 2 people for dances 5-6)
-Others who help with tear down
We recognize volunteers in a few ways:
-Announcements from the mic
-One free dance with local talent in May at the end of our season. Others
can attend but they pay. Special snacks.
I think there's so many other cool ways that volunteers could be recognized
-thank yous in eblasts, maybe the odd feature of a volunteer
