Thank you to everyone who has volunteered at the Information Desk in the past. Hopefully, you will choose to help us again this year. If you haven't volunteered previously, this is your chance to try something new!
Information Desk hours are: Thursday, July 5th for early convention arrivals; Friday, July 6th through Thursday, July 12th from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.; and Friday, July 13th from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
At the information desk you can: make reservations for banquet tables; give your room number for newspaper delivery; drop off your convention door prizes; pick up materials such as hotel orientation information; let us know about items you have lost or found; receive answers to any convention-related questions; and expect to be given courteous, accurate and professional assistance.
Information desk volunteers need to: quickly search for information as to the location of meetings, caucuses and special activities; be patient and friendly; and able to work in a fast-paced environment where several people may be waiting for your assistance. Volunteers should be able to work a minimum block of 3 hours. Of course you can always stop by the desk during the convention and volunteer your services; however, I prefer having at least a partial schedule of volunteers. We are also looking for someone who has their own laptop or notetaker and would be able to help copy files each morning. You should have the capability of copying files to a thumb drive, compact flash card, and a high-capacity SD card. If you are interested in volunteering at the information desk or copying files, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (801) 707-7195.
I look forward to meeting you in Louisville in July, and working with those who join me to make the Information Desk a galloping success.
