Assistant Treasurer:  A volunteer is needed to help the AAOCC Treasurer with some accounting tasks.  The position requires about 3-4 hours per week (flexible timing) and attendance at the monthly Finance and Fundraising meeting.  Knowledge of QuickBooks is helpful but not necessary.  The current Assistant Treasurer will be finishing out the school year, so there’s a lot of time for training and shadowing before the new volunteer takes over in the fall.  Contact Stacey Seaver ( with questions or to volunteer.

AAOCC Officers for 2019-2021:  Elections will be held later this year to replace our two term-limited AAOCC officers.  The open positions are for Fundraising Co-Chair and Secretary, each for a two-year term.  If you are interested in or have questions about an AAOCC officer position, contact the current co-chairs Lisa and Katherine (

PTO Thrift Shop Volunteers:  The Ann Arbor PTO Thrift Shop is looking for volunteers, and if we work together as a school community, our volunteering can earn some money for Ann Arbor Open!  We can earn a Service Award of $250 when AAO parents volunteer a total of 40 hours (all AAO parent shifts combined) from now until June.  If you’d like to help towards this goal, visit the PTO Thrift Shop website at and sign up using the “Volunteer” Tab or send an email using the “Contact Us” Tab.  One of the managers will be in touch with you to set up a volunteer time that will work for you.  If you mention that you are representing Ann Arbor Open, your volunteer hours will count towards our goal of 40 hours.
