Volunteer in Seattle!

If you’re attending Seattle, consider signing up as a volunteer for the registration desk or one of the events. If it’s your first or even second or third conference, volunteering is a great way to meet people without the awkwardness of trying to introduce yourself to strangers. The joint VRA-ARLIS conference will be much bigger than VRA conferences, so volunteering is even more crucial to meeting other members and, or course, meeting counterparts in ARLIS. Plus, some of my most fun experiences at VRA have been at the registration desk, like the year all of our registration materials got lost in the mail and we were frantically making badges at the desk!

Volunteering is a nice bridge to getting more involved with VRA, as you’ll meet both new and more seasoned members. It’s also a good break from sitting in sessions all day. You can sign up here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sKpBwTlffB1nPPefBNj-RaYnoYG6FsKq0HzI75a5y98/edit#gid=0, or email VRA Secretary Jasmine Burns at burnsjas@indiana.edu. We look forward to meeting you in Seattle!
