We are looking to recruit 30-35 volunteers to assist in various roles on Thursday, October 29, and Friday, October 30, 2009. The volunteer schedule is as follows: On Thursday, October 29, we hold an orientation, walk through and a conference preparation meeting from 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM; on Friday, October 30 for the entire event, from 7:30 AM - 4:30 PM and we will provide lunch. It is requested that volunteers commit to ALL HOURS.
If you are in (or can get yourself) to the Chicago area on the above days, please forward your information including your phone numbers (home and cell) and email addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org. The ESSENCE Empowerment Conference will give volunteers an opportunity to work with one of this country’s premiere African American publications and provide insight into the wonderful world of event production.
