Submit Placements

Starting September 1, 2018 we provide the option to submit your placement ad electronically and pay with a credit card. It is our hope that by providing this option we will make the placement service more convenient to our users, and will decrease the time required to process the advertisement. In order to provide this valuable service and continue to cover our expenses, the fee for a placement ad (electronically or paper-submitted) will be $20.

The Placement Service of the Baltimore Chapter of the American Guild of Organists is established to assist both Guild members and congregation. The Service provides the attached materials to aid in (1) defining the responsibilities of a church or temple musician, (2) determining a salary commensurate with work and skill required, and (3) selecting and individual to meet an organization's need. Please review our Sample Worksheet for determining number of hours per week.
