Butler Duties & Responsibilities

 

Thank you for agreeing to be a Butler.  Being a Butler helps Powell House better afford to operate with a small staff while it allows you to earn a credit worth $90 toward your conference. The following will give you an idea of what the Butler’s job entails.

 

  The Butler's job will allow you to attend the conference, but you are expected to report to the kitchen 30 minutes before the meals begin and to remain until the cleanup and resetting are complete.  PLEASE NOTE: You will be needed at 6:15 PM on Friday.  If you cannot arrive this early, let us know so we can fill in.
