There are two ways to volunteer other than volunteering as a presenter. You may either escort students to each workshop or help a presenter within a workshop as a workshop assistant. You may do both and we prefer that you do!
Presenters occasionally needs some help within their workshop, so workshop assistants are recruited to aid the presenter with material setup, help the students with the activity and help with crowd control. Workshop assistants are not asked to present any material.
Each volunteer is asked to be timely, professional, committed, and have a positive attitude while representing the university on behalf of Continuing Education and Outreach. Many attendees have never visited UW-Stevens Point or any university environment before, so we want to make the a good impression and have it be a positive experience. Energized and engaged volunteers make the event fun for everyone involved, including the event staff!
A volunteer assignment schedule is prepared ahead of time. Presenters are told how many volunteers will be assisting them and we notify each escort of their volunteering assignment and location. Please be aware that attendees pay $40 per person to attend this event and they expect it to run as advertised. Should you not be able to volunteer, and not show up, you will cause a significant disruption in our pre-determined schedule. If you are unable to volunteer, please try to provide us with a week notice. We want to provide a seamless event and do so by being as prepared as possible.
Sign up by February 10, 2017 volunteers will be notified by February 13, 2017.
