A Guild Member for 20 Years and Still Having Fun.

Heard Guild logo Turquoise backgroundWhen I moved to the Valley over 20 years ago the first thing I did was contact the Heard Museum to learn what volunteer opportunities were available.

I had been a docent in a world class museum in the Midwest and knew I wanted to continue my association with a museum in my new home.

I was fortunate enough to be accepted in the Las Guias Training class for that year. The education I received was exemplary and the process continues each year as we add new exhibits. Giving tours to people from around the world is continually rewarding.

Throughout the years that I have been a member of the Heard Museum and Heard Museum Guild I have enjoyed working on many committees … the best way to feel part of an organization… and in the process make many friends.  In my leadership roles as Shop Chair and Guild president I participated in the decision making processes of the Museum which added to my sense of inclusion as well as responsibility.  Being surrounded by a world class collection and amazing people contributes to a stimulating and exciting experience.  Membership in the Heard Museum Guild has opened up opportunities that I could not have experienced anywhere else.
