Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum welcomes new volunteer docents and greeters

. September 18, 2018

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., recently held an ice cream social for docent and greeter volunteers to kick-off the fall tour season. Fourteen new volunteers recently completed a five-week-long training course, and will now assist CBMM as docents leading guided tours of the campus, exhibits, and artifacts for adults and children and as greeters, introducing guests as they first step onto CBMM’s waterfront campus. These volunteers play an important role in helping bring the Chesapeake alive for CBMM guests.

Over the past year, nearly 250 volunteers logged more than 26,735 hours of service, taking on a variety of jobs across many departments. Volunteers are critical to CBMM’s success, and the museum is always looking for more. CBMM’s next docent and greeter training course is scheduled for March 2019. To learn about how you can get involved, visit, or contact CBMM Volunteer & Education Program Manager Allison Speight at or 410-745-4941.
