What does a marshal do?
The marshals welcome guests as they arrive at the venue, answer questions, and help make sure that the dinner runs smoothly without interruptions.
What is it like to be a marshal?
The marshals are arranged so that 1 or 2 sit per table. The marshals are responsible for making sure that their table is functioning well.
