Although the low turnout for the Open House was worrisome, the Executive Board members and other docents pulled together to recruit a few more trainees for this year’s training class. We have a small but talented group of 7 new trainees as of week 2. We’ve left the door open for others to join until week 3, so maybe we will have a few more.
Week one was a successful kickoff to the training classes where we focused on the ins and outs of our organization, curriculum and training. We are continuing to focus on using our online and digital tools for sign ups and learning videos this year. The next month the trainees will begin giving group and individual print presentations, as well as observing and assisting active docents in the classroom. Be sure to check out their bios and learn more about our newest members in the upcoming October Palette newsletter.
