Volunteers were instrumental in the formation of International Lineman Museum and volunteers continue to play a major role at the ILM today. Our  volunteers work with staff in every area to make the ILM what it is today — from finding and cataloging new items, to welcoming guests and giving tours of the Museum.

We appreciate the valuable gift we get from all of our volunteers — the gift of time. Without volunteers,International Lineman Museum could not offer the community all of the knowledge and history that the Museum represents.
