Front Desk Volunteers have been traditionally charged with collecting ballots for official elections of the organization. Much of the work done at the Asylum is done by volunteers, and this includes the front desk staff.  We have reiterated to the front desk volunteers that members who are working in a volunteer capacity should strive to be as neutral as possible with regard to issues and candidates while on duty.    This would include refraining from internal political discussions and recommendations for candidates.  The front desk should remain as neutral as practically possible regarding voting.

If you experience or witness a true conflict of interest while a volunteer is performing their front desk duties, please contact myself or Jess, and we will both discuss this further with that particular volunteer.  If the behavior remains after our discussion, the volunteer will have to recuse themselves from front desk duties until after the election.

Who We Are

  • Our front desk is run by a corps of members. Front Desk Volunteers (Deskies) are the Asylum’s front line greeters, our first impression for visitors and the curious, potential donors, the press, new students, and prospective members, and the first resource for existing members looking for help. They help find information or solutions for members and orienting new members, as well as handling sales and door access and helping with paperwork.

What We Do

  • Deskies are primarily concerned with security. During staffed hours, they are responsible for regulating access to the space.
  • If anyone walks past the Front Desk without badging in or signing in as a visitor, the deskie on duty will stop them to make sure they are in the right place.
  • Answer 300+ phone calls and emails / mo. You can reach the front desk via email at front-desk@artisansasylum.com
  • We send members package notifications when mail is received. We've sent over 16,000 package notifications
  • Greet visitors and give over 1,000 tours every year

So you wanna be a deskie?

Voting

Front Desk Volunteers have been traditionally charged with collecting ballots for official elections of the organization. Much of the work done at the Asylum is done by volunteers, and this includes the front desk staff. We have reiterated to the front desk volunteers that members who are working in a volunteer capacity should strive to be as neutral as possible with regard to issues and candidates while on duty. This would include refraining from internal political discussions and recommendations for candidates. The front desk should remain as neutral as practically possible regarding voting.

If you experience or witness a true conflict of interest while a volunteer is performing their front desk duties, please contact myself or Jess, and we will both discuss this further with that particular volunteer. If the behavior remains after our discussion, the volunteer will have to recuse themselves from front desk duties until after the election.
