If you enjoy fast-paced, varied activity, volunteer for a few hours at the information desk during the 2014 national conference and convention. Those who have volunteered in the past already know how much fun you can have and how many new people you can meet. Volunteers will answer questions in person and by phone about meeting locations, caucuses, and special activities; download documents for attendees; distribute newspapers, proposed changes to bylaws, and hotel information; and log in door prizes and auction items.
The desk will open on Thursday evening, July 10, for early arrivals. It will remain open throughout the convention, daily from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. the 11th through the 17th and 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the 18th.
At the information desk you can make reservations for banquet tables, sign up for newspaper delivery, drop off door prizes and items for the Brenda Dillon Memorial Auction, find hotel orientation information and select menus, and report items you have lost or found.
If you can work a minimum block of three hours, e-mail me at [email protected] or call (614) 949-7757. We need a group of friendly, courteous, and able people to help make this year's convention the best ever!
