ANG Seminar Hospitality Desk – Volunteers Welcome!

Filed under: ANG Seminar 2012

I am organizing the volunteers for the Hospitality Desk this year at Seminar. In case you don’t know, Hospitality Desk volunteers greet people as they enter the area to gain access to the bookstore, shop, and exhibit. We hold people’s bags (not purses) as they shop & browse the exhibit. There will be chairs for volunteers to sit in. It is a fun place to see folks & chat with ANGers from all over!

There will be free candy & perhaps brochures available for attendees. Attendees will drop their name in a box for a chance at the daily drawings. We have at least 17 daily prizes that have been donated and two larger donations….so members should be happy with lots of giveaways. Drawings are held at the end of the day (about 5 pm) for seven days – first Friday through Thursday.

There will be a daily drawing for people who volunteer anywhere at seminar for a $5 coupon off parking at the Marriott. There are about 20 coupons to be given out in the daily drawing.

Lastly, I plan on having a daily drawing for people who work the desk. For every hour worked, you get a chance in the drawing for a small piece stitched by me to commemorate the seminar! 

The Hospitality Desk will need volunteers from the first Friday beginning at noon and closing down on the last Friday of Seminar. We need 3-4 people per shift. They are done in 2 hour shifts. And, you may sign up for as many shifts as you would care to work. As of today, the hours that are particularly light on help are:

Friday, August 24; 2-4 pm
Saturday, August 25; 8-10, 10-12, 12-2, 2-4
Monday, August 27; 8-10, 10-12, 12-2, 2-4
Tuesday, August 28; 10-12
Wednesday, August 29; 8-10, 10-12, 2-4
Thursday, August 30; 10-12
Friday, August 31; 8-10, 10-12, 12-1

Please be sure these coordinate with your activities, classes, and/or tours – you can’t do both at the same time. For example, any of the Officers may want to attend the Officer’s meeting on Mon & so should not sign up for the Mon 4-6 pm shift. You may want to attend the Member’s meeting, silent auction, & live auction on Tues. Plan on arriving early to volunteer for a couple of hours, see the exhibit, shop the expo store, bid at the silent auction items (I submitted a liberty bell – pictured below), get lunch/dinner, and then get ready to bid!  Or, Expo is Thurs night. Both are popular events.

So, please let me know which days & shifts that you can commit to work. I will fill in slots on a first come first serve basis. All I need from you is a simple email ( with the day & time slot(s) that are good for you. You do not have to fill out a form and send it back to me. I want to make this as easy as possible for you. Then, you will hear back from me when I confirm your time slots.

Any questions please ask, looking forward to seeing you there, & thanks so much for the contribution of your time, Melita

I was a little worried when nobody bid on this at Silent Auction until after lunch. It went from $25 to $40 to $75!!! I was thrilled. Thanks to whomever went home with it.
