If you'd like to help out before or after the convention, there are also a number of opportunities. Especially needed are volunteers on Thursday (7/31) and Monday (8/04).
Thursday morning and early afternoon (10am to 2pm) we need strong-bodied individuals to help us load the truck. Thursday evening we need folks to help stuff the program books. Helpers meet at 6pm in the hotel lobby (if you arrive later please check with the desk), and stuffing usually goes until 10-11pm. Another group is needed that same evening to help set up the art show.
On Monday morning from 10am to about 2pm we need help loading the truck again. Helpers will meet in the area of the hotel front desk.
