Second Call for Volunteers for the 2014 BC Library Conference

Hello BCLA members,

Volunteers will be needed to make the 2014 BC Library Conference a success. Please let us know by February 7th if you are able to help!

Don’t miss the chance to meet new people, network with the library community, catch-up with old friends, and contribute to your Association!

If you are interested in volunteering, and have experience and skills to bring to volunteer positions, we are excited to hear from you. Volunteer positions include Registration Desk, Conference Office Assistants, & especially individuals to help direct delegates to rooms and events.

On Monday March 31st volunteers will be needed from 4 pm to 6 pm. At 6 pm those volunteers are invited to stay and attend the opening Keynote by Ivan Coyote and attend the following reception. On Tuesday and Wednesday, April 1st and 2nd, volunteers are needed for 4 hour shifts in the morning and afternoon. Volunteers are invited to attend conference sessions and events for the half day they are not volunteering. When you submit your name please let us know what volunteer shifts work best for you. We are also interested in hearing about any experience you have had with conferences or related work and how comfortable you are meeting and greeting the public.

Volunteer opportunities are also available for Session Convenors. These are full day opportunities and volunteers are invited to attend the conference on the day they are not volunteering. If you are interested in being a Session Convenor let us know what type of program introduction experience you have or other experience that demonstrates your ability to introduce presenters and to manage the day’s sessions.
