NERGC’s success depends on the talent and dedication of the all-volunteer staff. There are many opportunities to help out if you’re interested.
It’s never too early to start thinking of how you could donate your time and talents to help with this volunteer-run conference. We’re always looking for room monitors, assistance with preparing registration packets prior to the conference, check-in at registration, signage placement, etc. Usually a 1-2 hour commitment can assist your participating society in meeting their volunteer commitment. We’ll be publishing specific roles you can volunteer for in future E-zines and on the NERGC web page, so keep an eye out for a way to be a major part of this great event.
For registered attendees, the jobs include session host, session introduction, session door monitors, evaluation collection, meal ticket collection, audio-visual assistance.
For non-registered and registered attendees jobs include Registration sign-in, volunteer table, the hospitality table, vendor hall, Ancestors Roadshow, Hall guides, door prizes, signage, office monitor.
If you prefer another type of volunteer work – there’s also the post-conference evaluation data entry for which you receive paperwork at the conference and then enter at home and correspond with the coordinator by email.
