2018 September 1: Please read the following information carefully as our process for submitting placements has changed in order accommodate credit card payments. It is our hope that providing this option will make the Placements 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 own 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.
