Paul Moe from Sartell is our Conference Chair this year (you may know him as the friendly Exhibit Hall Chair for the past many, many years!) We have some people in place, but there are still positions available. This is a fun way to get involved with your organization with jobs both big and small.
Program Committee - Put out the call for breakout and poster session proposals, sift through them, and make the session schedule; create the print program (can update using previous versions). This committee definitely needs three or more people, so volunteer your friends, too!
Exhibit Hall - Work with Deanna to identify and invite vendors (both repeat attendees and new folks), liaise with A&N about setting up booths and tables, be on hand to greet vendors and troubleshoot any issues (before and during the conference).
Photographer - Help document the conference with photos of speakers, award winners, attendees, etc. Take pics of people in the ITEM photobooth frame and Tweet them out.
If none of these seem right for you but you want to help out, let us know! There are lots of other needs as well, like helping at the registration desk, take a shift as cashier at the ITEM Bookstore, review award nominations, decorating duty, and more.
