Calling for FGS 2015 Conference Volunteers

Are you planning to attend the 2015 Conference February 11–14 in Salt Lake City, Utah? Have you thought about volunteering to help

Volunteer at FGS 2015A conference can't run without volunteers. All those things we take for granted — from registration, to help finding a seat in a crowded session, to answers for all our logistical questions — happen because of volunteers.

For the 2015 conference, FGS needs volunteers for registration, hospitality/information desk, and monitors for session rooms, luncheons, and a social event.

Volunteering can save you money. FGS will refund volunteers a portion of their registration fee after the conference. To be eligible for a refund you must register for the full conference prior to January 23, 2015. The percentage of refund depends on the number of hours worked: 8 hours = 20%, 12 hours = 40%, and 16 hours = 65%.

For more information see the Call for FGS 2015 Conference Volunteers  and complete the Volunteer Form.

Need more incentive? Read what a couple of former volunteers have to say about their experience. 

Roberta Martin, a volunteer at past FGS conferences: "Volunteering at an FGS conference is a great way to get to meet people! My first two conferences I did not know anyone. Working as a volunteer gave me three things: an easy way to meet and interact with a lot of like-minded people, a sense of purpose, and a great way to give back. Try it, you'll like it!"

Marilyn Talbot, a volunteer at FGS 2014: "I enjoyed my first experience volunteering at FGS in San Antonio. I was a bit worried at first, but it was great fun. I helped with registration and hospitality, and would not hesitate to do it again. You meet so many interesting people."

Register and volunteer for FGS 2015 today.
