Wanted: Student Volunteers for SIOP 2005 Conference in Los Angeles
S. Douglas Pugh
University of North Carolina at Charlotte
Graduate Student Affiliates of SIOP wishing to volunteer to assist with the SIOP 2005 conference in Los Angeles must do so when they register online for the conference. Students not registering online will need to attach a note to their faxed or mailed registration form indicating a wish to volunteer. Last year, more than 80 students were volunteers. In Los Angeles, 80 student volunteers will be needed, starting on the afternoon of Wednesday April 13 and running through Sunday afternoon. All volunteers will receive, upon completion of their 4-hour obligation, a token of appreciation in the form of a $60.00 prepaid Visa card. This card will be provided at the conference and can be used like an ordinary credit or debit card.
Each volunteer is obligated to serve a total of 4 hours, though it may be served in 23 different blocks of time. Volunteers assist in a variety of ways, including helping with registration, assembling materials and signs, and serving as direction and information providers. Volunteers are selected based on the time that they register and their availability for a particular day and time. Doug Pugh
(firstname.lastname@example.org), Volunteer Coordinator, organizes the volunteers and will contact each selected volunteer a month before the conference by e-mail regarding their assignment and any additional information.
