BOX OFFICE CO-MANAGER & SOCIAL MEDIA COORDINATOR
The Box Office Co-Managers ensure the accurate, friendly, and efficient operation of the BCT Box Office while providing services to ticket-purchasing patrons, visitors to downtown Bloomington, and promoter partners (artists, organizations, or companies presenting events at the BCT and across the community). Co-Managers report to the Associate Director and are responsible for supporting box office staff with training on visitor services, organizational policy, and ticket sales procedures. This position is also responsible for the Buskirk-Chumley’s social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and coordinating the efforts of all staff to produce social media content.
