We are looking for volunteers to begin the formation of a Friends of JTVA to help with various aspects of the competition. This group will be asked to assist with hosting competitors and judges in home-stays, help with airport transportation, work in the lobby and backstage, as well as usher at the competition. In addition, these volunteers will assist with promotion of JTVA to the general public and help us at public events during the months in between competitions. Our first two "Friends", Margaret Bang and Laura Woodman are going to take a leadership role in helping to get this effort organized. If you want to volunteer or get more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
