Who wants to help us gear up for the 2019 Pikes Peak Writers Conference?
We need volunteers at all levels, with jobs large and small. Some require a high comfort level for interacting with the public, and some are well out of the limelight.
Two of the more substantial jobs are Conference Admin and Registrar. The Admin is essential to helping the conference come together, working with the directors, making sure communication if flowing and deadlines are being met. The Registrar oversees every aspect of registration, from using software to design the registration form to answering registration questions from attendees.
Other jobs include Signs Coordinator, Survey Coordinator and Reg Desk Coordinator. All three require the ability to work well with others, solicit and compile information from directors, and attention to detail. Signs and Surveys have less public contact, but the Reg Desk has a great deal, so we need a real extrovert (or someone who can play one for a weekend).
Brochure Design means we need someone with graphic skills and excellent attention to detail to help construct the brochure to advertise the conference. This could also extend to helping build the conference program.
Tech Team Coordinator will wrangle all our techies, the people in each workshop room who make sure the laptops are playing nicely with the projectors. Must be able to work with a variety of people and have good team-leading skills.
Onsite Volunteer Coordinator is exactly what it sounds like! We get lots of people who want to help, and we need someone to coordinate what, when and where the needs are, and assign volunteers to the tasks.
Allergy Meal Coordinator tracks attendee allergy requests from the registration form, and coordinates with the hotel chef and Green Room Coordinator.
Handouts Coordinator takes all the handouts from faculty, via the Programming Director, and puts them together in a semblance of order. Then oversees distribution to attendees.
Scholarship Coordinator will gather scholarship applications, build a scholarship committee, and work with that committee to distribute scholarship funds for conference.
