2018 Home Tours Docents

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the AIA East Bay Homes Tour as a docent. All docents receive a complimentary, non-transferrable half-day tour ticket.

Please note that docents will be required to stand for long periods of time.

Tickets and house assignments will be distributed at the August docent trainings.


Docent shifts are Saturday, August 4, 2018 with the morning shift beginning at 9:15am and afternoon ending at 4:45pm. Shifts will be assigned based on need. 

Docent Training
Docents are required to attend a training in the week prior to the tour. To accomodate schedules we have provided two different training times. Docents should attend only one training.

In the following registration page we'll ask you to identify if you'll attend the training on Wednesday, August 1st at 6pm, or Thursday, August 2nd at noon. You can always switch which training you'll be attending--this is for food and beverage counts.

1)      Can we pick the house we want to docent?

No, but you can say if you’d like to volunteer or carpool with someone.

2)      Can docents hand out business cards?

No, but you can include your last name on your name badge (some docents will not want last names)

3)      What’s the theme of the tour?

Officially: East Bay Living. The goal of the tour is to engage the public with architecture--which is why it's so important that docents have knowledge of architecture!

4)     I don't have a car.

We encourage you to carpool. If you cannot find someone to carpool with, please contact staff at
