Have you attended the Annual Meeting before? We need you! We would like to have 40 volunteers to each call and welcome 10 new members/first time attendees of the 61st Annual Meeting! This Volunteer opportunity is for those individuals who have attended the Annual Meeting previously. What does this entail? Calling 10  new members/first time attendees between July 15 - 29 to help answer their questions and share your knowledge of the conference, along with a follow-up call after the conference to check in about their experience.

Help fellow participants stay active during the Annual Meeting. Lead fitness activities, such as the Fun Run, Power Walk, or Yoga!

Share your knowledge of NCURA Publications. Assist with publication sales during NCURA's Marketplace hours and help participants find the right resources for their research administration library.

Make participants feel welcome during Annual Meeting’s Registration. Hand out conference badges to participants, all while getting to know your NCURA colleagues.

Meet fellow participants by helping them navigate their way through the conference. Help NCURA help others find their way by directing participants to their proper session room. You will be equipped with a hotel map and a “May I Help You Find Your Meeting Room” sign. There will be 2 volunteers per station helping people find their meeting room during the times before session start times. 

The NCURA Cares Shower Outreach program helps local shelters by creating hygiene kits for the homeless. By donating one night's worth of hotel shower toiletries, participants help provide necessities for a clean shower to those in need. NCURA Volunteers will be collecting these hygiene kits throughout the conference so that we can bring them to a local DC shelter at the end of the conference. Volunteer to provide assistance with donation collections and show how NCURA Cares!

Continue conversations and make new connections while enjoying a meal with your colleagues. Volunteer to lead a dinner group to a local DC restaurant. NCURA staff will provide sign-up sheets and restaurant information.

Are you on twitter and planning to attend the AM61 Conference? Volunteer to join AM61 Team Twitter, tweet throughout the meeting and help those new to twitter learn what it is all about! As a Twitter 101 Volunteer, you will teach members how to set up a twitter account, find association news and how to follow agency information important to their career.

Are you active on Facebook and planning to attend the AM61 Conference? Volunteer to join AM61 Facebook Fans and post throughout the meeting!
