JGSLA 2010 has put out a public call for volunteers, via conference volunteer coordinator Lois Rosen. (See below for some important jobs that need the right person now!)
A major conference like this relies on an army of volunteers in so many areas. Some jobs can be done from home prior to the conference, others are focused on helping during the conference.
Do you have time to help before or during the conference?
During the conference, help is needed in all areas to help staff important locations, such as registration, hospitality, resource and more.
Volunteering your time adds to the success of the event, and also helps you meet new people and make new friends.
Here are just some of the possibilities:
Resource Room staff
Film Festival or Screening Room staff
Tour chaperones or guides
Computer or tech support volunteers
Outreach to are synagogues
Outreach to area Jewish organizations, schools, or youth groups
and many more opportunities!
Before the conference, there are other jobs that need to be done. Frequent conference attendees who arrive early know all about bag-stuffing! But there’s much more.
Volunteers needed now:
Banquet Journal: Volunteers needed for Ad Solictor and Ad Layout.
Volunteer Scheduling Coordinator: This is a major job and carries a perk (free conference registration).
Carpenter/Artist: For the handy creative types out there: A carpenter/artist volunteer is needed to create a directional sign post for the Market Square event. This needs include arrows showing the distance to, for example, Minsk or Warsaw. Tracing the Tribe is assuming distances will be measured from Los Angeles.
There are many other jobs you can do. See the next Tracing the Tribe post which details some ways that you can help, no matter where you live.
