Annual Conference Volunteer Assistance Requested

    Posted 10 days ago

    Hello Friends of NCSS Community!

    As we prepare for our 99th Annual Conference in Austin, this may prove to be our largest conference ever! Last year we enjoyed a significant increase in attendance to the conference and were quite busy in several areas of the conference floor plan. This year we anticipate the same amount of energy and excitement and would like to request some assistance to help host the NCSS Membership Booth during exhibit floor hours.

    With a tiny, yet mighty staff of ten employees at NCSS, we are not always able to be in multiple locations at the same time...specifically at registration and the exhibit booth when the doors initially open on Friday and Saturday mornings. That's where we hope you can assist us!

    Would you be willing to volunteer an hour or two to host the NCSS membership booth with staff or on behalf of staff?

    If you are able to spare a few hours, please let me know by emailing me directly at jlindsey@ncss.org. The NCSS Exhibit Hall is open the following hours:

    Friday, November 22: 9:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m. CST
    Saturday, November 23: 7:45 a.m.-4:00 p.m. CST

    Your early commitment to volunteer during any time period of your choice by November 13th is greatly appreciated and will help us to fill any gaps in service to our members on location. Thank you in advance for considering to help as we know your conference interests and demands are many!

    Sincerely,
    Joy

    I will commit to 3 hours spread over the 2 days, just trying to figure out when.

    I can help out for an hour. Saturday will be better for me than Friday. Would 7:45-8:45 on Saturday work for me to volunteer?
    Or I could do 1-2 or 2-3 Saturday afternoon. Please let me know which you would prefer. Once times for the Vital Issues session are posted/available for us to view, I can possibly volunteer a 2nd hour, but I really want to see one session specifically if possible.

    Hi everyone,
     It's great to hear that so many of you can volunteer some time.  Would the Google Form that NCSS created for volunteers be helpful to keep track of the scheduling?  Just a thought.

    Good morning to Friends of NCSS!

    Thanks for the suggestion of adding to a Google form... For now, please send your times directly to my inbox at jlindsey@ncss.org. I am answering individual questions in my inbox about conflicting obligations, etc., before confirming the time slots requested. Once I get the schedule drafted, I'll post an excel spreadsheet with remaining times to the group.

    If you have questions about other events happening at the conference and want to serve, but you are not sure if you have a timing conflict...email me your questions! We will work it out.

    Keep the sign-ups coming...Thank you all for your prompt and speedy responses!

    Joy
