conference volunteers NEEDED!
The SIETAR USA National Conference is a perfect illustration of the saying "It takes a village..." In addition to all the people involved in the planning and logistics leading up to the event, it would be impossible to accomplish without the support of volunteers during the event - the "boots on the ground".
SIETAR USA is requesting the assistance of volunteers to help support and facilitate a variety of events and activities during this year's conference. Areas where we need your assistance include:
Technical Support: provide technical support and assistance to presenters over the course of the day.
Program Support: provde program and logistics support in the main ballroom and/or workshop rooms.
Silent Auction Support: assist with event setup, onging monitoring and support, and help finalize transactions at the end of the auction.
Registration Support: help staff the registration desk during peak hours, answer event, facility and logistics questions, and support event coordination with the facility; assist with conference "teardown" at the end.
Being a volunteer is a great way to meet and connect with fellow conference attendees while learning the ins and outs of running a conference.
Volunteers will receive direction and instruction relevant to their role(s).
