ABANA call for help

ABANA 2020 call for help

Mar 24, 2018

Folks: This is a request for help in 2020 for the ABANA National Conference. Jim will discuss at the next meeting.


Thanks I will post this on our web site and ask members to sign up. I hope we get a young capable volunteer coordinator to sign up. Jim

Hi Jim,

We have most of our leadership positions filled but we will be looking for help during the conference in the form of demonstrator assistants, runners, and youth teaching area monitors. I want to have a broad enough group of volunteers to draw from so no one individual misses much of the conference as they're helping out. The set up will most likely be managed by the ABANA set up crew so I expect we will be good there. As it gets closer there may be other assignable tasks.

If you have one motivated go getter that wants to be part of the leadership team I am in the market for a volunteer coordinator. This position requires computer skills and an organized mind. They must be able to play well with others. The work load for this person would probably not get started until 2019 but they would be in the leadership communication loop and up to speed on the conference goings on.

Anybody come to mind?

I will also be seeking some folks to sit an information table in Richmond selling tee shirts and some swag related to 2020, handing out packets and answering questions. I want to have enough people for this so no one is there more than 2 hours per shift. Again I don't want people to miss blocks of the conference.

Let me know your thoughts.

Bob Menard
