Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in becoming a volunteer?

The Sangamon Auditorium Volunteer Association (SAVA) currently has moreSAVA_volunteer.jpg than 235 members who are responsible for serving as floor managers and ushers at events. These dedicated volunteers are trained in customer service skills and safety and security measures such as emergency evacuation procedures. They are proud supporters of the Auditorium's mission to present high quality professional arts entertainment to Springfield and the surrounding region. 

  • Interested applicants receive thorough training on customer service, event details, and how to sign-up for shows.
  • Several training dates are usually offered annually in August to prepare for the next fall season; applicants need to attend only one of these sessions.
  • Currently, we are placing applicant names on a waiting list while we determine the number of volunteer openings for next year, please contact Carly Shank at carmi1@uis.edu or 217.206.8432 to include your contact information on the waiting list.
This portion is for current volunteers only!
