Wanted: Student Volunteers for SIOP 2009
University of Western Ontario
Graduate Student Affiliates of SIOP wishing to volunteer to assist with the SIOP 2009 conference in New Orleans must indicate 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 new Orleans, we are increasing our use of student volunteers significantly beyond what we have used in the past. Student volunteers will be needed starting on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 31 and running through Saturday evening. All volunteers will receive, upon completion of their 4-hour obligation, a token of appreciation. Last year, student volunteers received a $60.00 prepaid MasterCard.
Each volunteer is obligated to serve a total of 4 hours, though it may be served in 2–3 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. Joerg Dietz (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Doug Pugh (email@example.com), volunteer coordinators, organize the volunteers and will contact each selected volunteer a month before the conference by e-mail regarding their assignment and any additional information.
