Marketing: We'd love to have someone help with our social media platforms (posting and increasing our reach)
Scholarship/Donations: Contact individuals and companies who may want to donate cash or goods to the conference
Programs: Design programs to be distributed to conferees. Research good-quality but low-cost options for printing. Get them printed.
Meals: Help plan meals, beverages, and snacks for attendees and faculty, and make sure the food gets to the conference center
Lodging and Transportation: Communicate with out-of-area faculty members who need rides or assistance with lodging and match them up with people who will be available to provide for those needs. (We'll also need some people who can provide rides and/or housing for our out-of-area faculty.)
Administration: Put together goodie bags for conferees. Prepare table signs. Put tablecloths on tables in Resource Room. Set up freebie table.
Registration Desk: Help check in attendees at the conference
Book Table Assistant: Help the book table manager count books and sign them in, keep track of books sold, double-check numbers against the consignment form. Could use one helper throughout the conference and a second one during busy times (Friday morning, between sessions, at meals, Saturday evening).
Greeters/HelpersPeople who are familiar with the OCCWC and can help newbies feel comfortable by answering questions and showing them around.
Prayers: Commit to praying for staff, faculty members, attendees, and other volunteers before the conference and/or in our Prayer Center at the conference.
If you'd like to help us out in any way, please use the send an email to [email protected] to let us know what your talents, skills, and passions are, and we'll work with you to find a task you will enjoy doing.
While we would be thrilled to have people who can help purely out of the goodness of their hearts and a passion to follow God's leading, we do have a limited number of full and partial scholarships available for those who assist with the conference and need the financial help. If you would like to apply for a scholarship, let us know. The more you can do as a volunteer, the more of a scholarship we can offer.
