“Staffing”. What’s wrong with the word “staffing”?

I am a devout believer in gender-neutral language being used for gender-neutral purposes, but “personing” is just lazy and a free kick to the Devines, Bolts, Blairs and Albrechtsens of the world.

Looks like they have finally run out of goodwill amongst art school glass students who had to pass around food at the openings etc.

perhaps they should look at older retirees that are looking to do something to feel needed by the community, instead of sitting around waiting for their relatives to visit them in their big, empty houses…

many of these people still have much to give to the community. Might as well let them.

You’re right – they should pay for advertising for an unpaid position that benefits the community.

Typical, they get a shipload of ACT ratepayer’s money to set this up, then they need volunteers to “person” the place.

They could have said Gallery Attendant – how hard is that ..pfft personing – what a joke, PC crap at its finest.

My name was Mandrake, but society made me change it to Persondrake.

Personing?

Political correctness is killing us….

Apparently one of the duties for a volunteer is “personing the gallery“.
