  • Gain insight and ideas from within and outside the opera field.
  • Build your network.
  • Foster organizational partnerships.
  • Discover what opera companies are doing to advance the art form.
  • Learn practical skills that will enhance your contribution to the field.
  • Reconnect with your colleagues.

Opera Volunteers International is an important part of the opera industry and OPERA America’s annual conference. Join fellow volunteers and contribute to this year’s dialogue on increasing opera’s civic impact.  This year OVI members can register for an abbreviated conference schedule (including all OVI sessions) for a very affordable reduced price.

Matching Grant, Partners in Excellence and Projects of Special Merit Deadlines

Better get busy!  The March 15 deadline for OVI Matching Grants is fast approaching.  Group members in good standing can apply for grants of up to $2,000.   Guidelines and application information can be found on this website under Grants & Awards.

March 15 is also the deadline for Projects of Special Merit and Partners in Excellence applications.

Let the whole opera volunteer community know about your brilliant, clever, wildly successful, inclusive, motivating  project. Go to the Grants & Awards pulldown menu to find more information about the application process.

Partners in Excellence recognizes special individuals, couples, or groups who have made a significant contribution to your group or opera company.  A significant milestone, long and meritorious service, inspirational leadership, and more deserve to be marked.  Application information is found under Grants & Awards.

The Changing Face of Volunteerism

Check out a terrific white paper, The Changing Face of Volunteerism, by Andy Steggles, President and Chief Customer Officer of Higher Logic.  It can help understand how to engage, motivate and recognize volunteers, and to look at three different roles for volunteers — traditional terms, task, and micro volunteering.”
