Volunteer at the HFAC

The Guild. our volunteer organization, was founded in 1994 to support the programs and events of Henderson Fine Arts Center (HFAC) and Henderson Area Arts Alliance (HAAA).  Currently we have more than 60 volunteers who enjoy the social atmosphere of meeting and greeting patrons, helping newcomers find their seats, and serving as an ambassador for the Center, plus seeing a fabulous performance.

Membership is $15 and the only requirement is a willingness to volunteer your time and talents to support the arts in our community.  Guild members enjoy several perks such as first choice in all ushering opportunities and an invitation to the annual Sneak Preview dinner--when the new arts season is first announced.
