greeters should also speak with the head usher to display what they need to do and what the greeter has to do. keep open communication so everyone can be on the same accord, ask questions also review ask questions if you are not sure of your job as a greeter, always have a smile on your face, we all must be on the same page at all time, we will encounter a meeting on what and how the greeter come in contact with visitor and members we are going to work on our vision along with rules and our main function
