There are many ways to help at the Convention. Please feel free to volunteer for a specific role or indicate your willingness to help wherever needed.
Education Room Host: The Education Room Hosts help the education presenters have a successful session. Responsibilities include:
Education Room Hosts will be needed on Friday afternoon for Wayne Breitbarth (be available 3:45 – 5) and at the education sessions on Saturday (be available 9:45 – 11, 10:45 – 12, or 2:25 – 4:15. Note the afternoon session coincides with the District Council meeting). We will match you to a session that you want to attend.
Registration: If you want to be the first person to greet Toastmasters as they arrive and make them feel welcome and happy that they have come to the event, this is the role for you. Registration will be staffed on Friday afternoon up until the Table Topics Contest, and Saturday morning from 7 am until about noon. Shifts will vary and last 1-2 hours. Volunteer early and choose a shift. Responsibilities include:
You can contact Registration Chair Tommy Gust directly at TommyGust.TM@outlook.com 262.930.1276
Raffle Ticket Sales: Want to test your sales skills? Help sell raffle tickets during the convention. We’ll need some people walking around during breaks in the program and some people to sell from a table near registration. Shifts will vary and we can accommodate your schedule. We’ll adorn you in a fun hat or headpiece, with a classy sash to make you really stand out. Can you hear the call, “Raffle, raffle, get your raffle tickets here…”
Technology: Are you good at making the computer and projector work together? Can you figure out how to darken a Powerpoint
screen (or get it to project when it isn’t)? Maybe you were in a garage band and know how to run a mixing board. The District Technology Committee needs help with making sure education session presenters are set and ready with their tech needs, doing sound checks and assisting with putting microphones on contest contestants. AND they need help at other district events. Whether you want to help at convention, or make a longer-term commitment, this is the team for you. If your skills are not top notch, but this is something that interests you, don’t hesitate to volunteer. “On the job training” is available.
If you want to help please send your name, phone number and email address to: Rhonda Williams at RhondainWisconsin@gmail.com. Let me know if you want to help with a specific committee. I’ll pass your information on to the appropriate contact(s). Thanks!
