AORE Annual Conference 2020 Virtual Logo | Campfire Connections

VOLUNTEERING FOR CONFERENCE



Each year, AORE brings together a dynamic planning team comprised of volunteers living and working throughout the United States to assist in the planning and execution of the conference. This opens the door to each and every AORE member who is interested in the development and implementation of the largest and most visible program of the association.

If you're interested in getting involved at any level, in any capacity - whether as a lead volunteer or a day-of volunteer - please submit the form on this page. We will be in touch soon!

There are many ways to get involved in AORE's Annual Conference - from a leadership role through an hour of day-of-event volunteering - and all the various options in between.

CONFERENCE CHAIRS

Two members come together to support the action teams. Their role is to keep those teams moving forward throughout their assigned tasks. These roles serve from January/February through the conference and post-event evaluation period.

Time Frame: Jan-Nov

Time per Month: 10-15 hours

ONSITE VOLUNTEERS

Closer to the conference, a complete schedule with volunteer slots identified will be released. Every attendee is encouraged to sign up for at least one (1) time slot, which can range from one (1) to three (3) hours. The tasks/responsibilities are easy to convey, require little to no training, and help ensure a positive attendee experience.
