Call for Papers for 2019 – closed March 10, 2018
NERGC conferences have been successful due to the talent and dedication of its 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 all volunteer run conference. We’re always looking for volunteers to help prepare registration packets prior to the conference, check-in at registration, room monitors, 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.
