The information desk is an important part of the annual conference and convention. 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.
Consider helping out for a few hours at the information desk this year. It’s a great way to meet new people, and you will learn more about the many affiliates and activities than you ever thought possible! 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 2, for early arrivals. It will remain open throughout the convention, daily from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. the 3rd through the 9th and 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the 10th.
If you would like to work for a few hours, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (614) 949-7757. You don’t have to specify when you are available until you have registered for the convention and know your schedule for the activities and events that interest you. We need a group of friendly, courteous, and able people to help make this year's convention the best ever!
