Blues Music Awards Volunteers Needed For May 5-6

Hello Friends!

The office has been buzzing with activity since we wrapped up the International Blues Challenge. Voting for the Blues Music Awards, membership processing, increased web store activity and the launching of Generation Blues. We are now busy getting the plans for the Blues Hall of Fame (May 5) and The Blues Music Awards (May6) finalized.

The Blues Foundation could not continue to enjoy our recent success without a strong team of dedicated volunteers! Thank you for your contributions and dedication to excellence in all you do! Neither words nor actions could ever express our sincere gratitude to your hard work. It is a privilege and an honor to work with you to continue to advance our genre.

There will be a few changes in store for 2010 and we need your help! Below is a list and brief description of the tasks, approximate times of the jobs. Please respond to this email with your preferred tasks and hours of availability. Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you!
