The information desk will be alive and well again this year in Minneapolis. As always, you can find hotel orientation information and select menus, drop off door prizes and items for the auction, sign up for newspaper delivery, report items you have lost or found, reserve your banquet table, and more.
Helping out for a few hours at the information desk is a great way to meet people, learn about workshops and events, and learn more about the many affiliates and activities than you ever thought possible! Volunteers will answer questions in person and by phone about meeting locations, caucuses, and special activities; download documents for attendees; distribute newspapers, proposed changes to bylaws, and hotel information; and log in door prizes and auction items. We need you if you read braille fluently, are friendly and courteous, and thrive on doing two or three things at once.
The desk will open on Thursday evening, June 30, for early arrivals. It will remain open throughout the convention, daily from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. July 1-7 and 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the 8th.
If you would like to work for a few hours, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (614) 949-7757. Don’t worry about scheduling your hours until you have registered for the convention and know your schedule for the activities and events that interest you. Help make the 2016 ACB conference and convention the greatest!
