Have you attended the PRA Conference? We need you! We would like to have 30 volunteers to each call and welcome 10 new members/first time attendees of the 2019 PRA Conference! This Volunteer opportunity is for those individuals who have attended the FRA or PRA Conference previously. What does this entail? Calling 10  new members/first time attendees between February 11 - March 1 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.

NCURA is calling on local members from Las Vegas to join NCURA’s Host City Welcome Committee. This is an opportunity for you to showcase your home city while getting to know your fellow NCURA colleagues. Provide fellow attendees with information about Las Vegas, recommend restaurants and other must-see hot spots around the city.

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

Make participants feel welcome during PRA’s Registration. Assist participants with their badges, 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. 

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 warm, clean showers for those in need. NCURA Volunteers will collect these hygiene kits throughout the conference and bring them to a local Las Vegas 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 Las Vegas restaurant. NCURA staff will provide sign-up sheets and restaurant information.

Are you active on social media and planning to attend the 2019 PRA Conference? Volunteer to join 2019 PRA Facebook Fans and post throughout the meeting!

Tech Team members play a key role in ensuring the success of the PRA conference. Provide technical support for conference sessions by setting up laptops and projectors at the beginning of the day and breaking down after the day's last session. As a member of this critical team, you will receive a 50% rebate off your conference registration fee.

Bring your projector(s) for use in the meeting rooms throughout each day, and receive a 50% rebate off your conference registration fee. Projectors will be collected during Pre-Registration on  Wednesday, March 13, 2019 and should be picked up after the last day's session on  Friday, March 15, 2019. Projectors must have at least 2500 lumens to ensure they work properly in large rooms and projectors with HDMI ports are encouraged.

What did you think of that last session? Which one was the most helpful? Tell us what you thought about the concurrent sessions of this year's PRA Conference! We are always striving to improve the content of our meetings and would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions. Download the evaluation questionnaire, and return it to the NCURA Registration Desk or email it to us at mckenna@ncura.edu
