[Perform-Talk] need some ideas

Here's some thoughts:

1. Any forms and written info can be done electronically. If you have access to a tablet or computer with accessibility, then just do registration and other forms electronically. Spreadsheets work well for account/payment info.

2. Attendance is easy as well. Either do electronically again, or use Braille (if you use it). If someone else needs the attendance, just transcribe it later for them.

3. Cash can be counted with an iBill or app on phone/tablet. The app available on iPhones is pretty fast. My husband uses it for his business, and he counts through several hundreds of dollars quickly. For checks, because of the hand-written element, you may need assistance, but for the donation form, again, just do it electronically and email to treasurer.

4. Once you have written down donations/sponsorships either electronically or with Braille (or if print works for you) then you can just check to the electronic form to compare.

5. Information can be emailed to those needing it, or of course, you can communicate verbally. Keep track of who needs what, have an email/text list, and as info needs to be distributed, send to proper people. You can also keep a list you bring to each meeting/rehearsal and verbally communicate to necessary people at that time. You can always print off info ahead of time and distribute to necessary people as well so they have a hard-copy note.

6. Most of what you list here, and things I can think of, can be accomplished with Braille and/or electronic means.

Good luck. Sounds like a great opportunity.

Hi, all,

A wonderful opportunity may be crossing my path, and I wanted to check in with you for some “blind-friendly” ideas as I consider this. I’m seriously thinking about taking on the position of soprano section leader for a local community chorus of 40-50 members. I’ll be meeting with the current leader and our chorus manager when we re-convene in a couple weeks, to discuss the idea, and, having never had a post like this, I’m open to suggestions. Here are the duties, as cited in an email from our current soprano section leader. Handling ticket and sponsor money may no longer be necessary, I’m told by our president, since those tasks may be re-delegated elsewhere, but in case I ever need to address that, feel free to speak about that, too. Thanks!

  1.. Attend registration and account for dues paid, by taking payment and completing the info form so they can pick up music. 
  2.. Take and mark weekly attendance. 
  3.. Accept and total money and checks for donations/tickets and fill out a Donations Received form and give it to the treasurer. 
  4.. Compare donation/sponsorship monies to items on the donation sheets and turn them in to sponsorship chair. 
  5.. Information taker and disseminator.   I often have to keep track of music markings/notes and pass them along to sopranos that have missed rehearsal.  I also have to pass along any information that has been shared with me via phone/email. 
  6.. Other miscellaneous items asked to do.
