Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the ORPA Annual Conference!  We love it when our members and attendees can help give back to this amazing conference.  Plus, volunteering at the conference has great benefits:

  1. You only commit to an amount of time you are comfortable with
  2. You get to meet new professionals in the process of working together to make this conference great
  3. You get a great sense of accomplishment 
  4. You can choose a volunteer shift that meets your interests
  5. You can ask a friend/co-worker to work a shift with you for more fun!

See?  Endless fun and possibilities.  Now, the nitty-gritty:

Volunteer Roles

Registration Desk

Why should you do it?

By working at the registration desk you get to be the first point of contact to greet all attendees.  A smile and warm welcome set the tone of the conference and your helpful demeanor will be the first thing people remember about our conference.  You will get to meet all kinds of professionals from around the state, as well as see some old friends or colleagues who will be joining us!

If you are a helpful type person, and love to welcome people in - this is the position for you!

Room Host

We know you don't want to miss your favorite sessions - and this position guarantees it!  You can sign up to be a room host for one or many sessions.  Then just let me know which sessions you want to host!*  This is a great position if you like standing in front of people and introducing speakers and the presentation.  

*accommodating special session requests are on a first come first served basis - so sign up early!

Event Set Up Team

If you like working behind the scenes, or prefer work that has a project start and end point, you would fit well in the close-knit team that works to set up the conference.  In this position you get plenty of room to stretch your legs around the space, learn where everything goes and see how the conference operates.  You will work closely with ORPA staff and Board Leaders to help execute an amazing event.

Break Down Team

It is the last day of the conference, only two sessions to go and there you are - ready to help get everything packed up!  Your enthusiasm for helping to load up makes our job 10 times easier and we are lucky to have you on board!  This volunteer shift involves collecting signage and equipment to pack up at the end of the conference.  The best incentive? This could be the shortest shift yet - once the packing is done, you are all done.  And that's a wrap!
