Greet Museum visitors with a smile and welcome them to the Birmingham Museum of Art. Ask if they are a member of the Museum and if not, would they like to become one. Open your member’s brochure and provide them with the basic membership cost information. Go over the benefits if they inquire about a level of membership.
On the membership application, check the desired membership category. Ask them if they are interested in joining one of the Museum support groups. Support Group information is also on the Information Desk in one of the rack cardholders. Museum Membership is an essential prerequisite for joining a support group, so, have the visitor fill in the necessary information.
You may take a check or credit card number. Check the credit card with the given number and expiration date to make sure the number is written correctly and be sure to get the expiration date also listed on the credit card. If they are paying with cash, walk them to the Museum Store and let the store employees take care of the transaction in case the visitor does not have correct change.
Give the new member the half of the membership brochure that lists the membership levels and benefits. Inform new Museum members that they will receive their membership cards within two weeks. You will keep the membership application with the check and put in the membership cash box. If you have any questions call Membership at x3915 or the Volunteer Office at 205.254.2070.
