Western employees are invited to get involved in the conference by becoming a volunteer during conference week. Volunteer roles include helping in many capacities, including: introducing and thanking speakers, greeting people, directing "people traffic", setting up in advance of the conference, and assisting with clean-up afterwards.
Any employee who will be attending the conference may indicate on their registration that they are available to volunteer.
Volunteers must commit to attending a Volunteer Preparation Meeting, and must be available to assist at multiple sessions throughout the conference as needed. A preparation meeting will be scheduled in early February and interested volunteers will be contacted with details. During the conference, volunteers are asked to arrive 15-30 minutes before the conference sessions begin.
Simply register for the conference, and indicate at the end of your registration that YES -- you would like to be a volunteer. After the registration period closes, we will contact volunteers on a first-come and as-needed basis.
For more information about volunteer positions, please contact Cara Carson at ext. 85581 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
