The Earlybird registrations are going extremely well – over 50% of the available tickets have sold in just two weeks! This is no longer a conference we are planning – this is a conference that is happening and that makes the Organisation Team very happy!
Speakers have been scheduled. Delegates are coming. We now urgently need to expand our team of volunteers to manage and assist all these wonderful visitors to ensure that LCA 2015 is unforgettable – for all the right reasons.
Volunteers are needed to register our delegates, show them to their accommodation, guide them around the University and transport them here and there. They will also manage our speakers by making sure that their presentations don't overrun, recording their presentations and assisting them in many other ways during their time at the conference.
Anyone who has been a volunteer before will tell you that it’s an extremely busy time, but so worthwhile. It’s rewarding to know that you’ve helped everybody at the conference to get the most out of it. There's nothing quite like knowing that you've made a difference.
But there is more, membership has other privileges and advantages! You don't just get to meet the delegates and speakers, you get to know many of them while helping them as well. You get a unique opportunity to get behind the scenes and close to the action. You can forge new relationships with amazing, interesting, wonderful people you might not ever get the chance to meet any other way.
Every volunteer's contribution is valued and vital to the overall running and success of the conference. We need all kinds of skills too – not just the technically savvy ones (although knowing which is the noisy end of a walkie-talkie may help). We want you! We need you! It just wouldn't be the same without you!
If you would like to be an LCA 2015 volunteer it's easy to register. Just go to our volunteer page for more information. We review volunteer registrations regularly and if you’re based in Auckland (or would like a break away from wherever you are) then we would love to meet you at one of our regular meetings. Registered volunteers will receive information about these via email.
