The Stage Managers Association has a number of committees that assist us in serving our membership and the greater community. Virtually every non-profit organization depends on the efforts expended by volunteers towards achieving its goals. That is also true of the Stage Managers’ Association.

The actual work of being a member of a committee varies depending on the committee. Each committee also has a Board Member as a liaison, who acts as an active member of the committee.

This is a great opportunity for any member to play a vital role in the success of the SMA. Volunteering to work on a committee can be great fun, and an excellent way to meet other active members in a relatively informal setting. Just like a good party – a member will get more out of the SMA when they put more into it.
