Volunteers must like helping people with a smile regardless of the circumstances. There are 3 different volunteer positions for adults, and youths ages 15-18 can volunteer to serve as Convention Pages.
Adult Volunteers may be delegates, alternates or guests. All adult volunteer positions require a minimum 4 hour scheduled shift commitment and are:
Ambassadors: A “new” volunteer position to the 2012 Convention will help provide general information about the convention when attendees are seeking directions or asking general questions. Ambassadors will staff “way-finding” tables inside convention hotels and at informational kiosks inside the convention center.
Registration: Volunteers distribute registration packets and pleasantly assist convention attendees in obtaining their badges. Volunteers should have computer word processing knowledge and be able to calmly interact with people who are waiting in line.
Sergeant-at-Arms: This position requires the ability to interact professionally with convention attendees in multiple scenarios such as checking credentials of persons entering certain areas of the convention center and staffing the floor microphones when debate occurs on the convention floor.
Convention Pages assist delegates, alternates, and guests to their respective seating on the convention floor, and also usher their assigned delegation to the Senate District Caucus room to avoid unnecessary delays. During caucus meetings, pages will carry messages to other chairmen, convention staff or the delegation and assist with any business of the caucus (roll call, balloting, literature distribution, giving directions in the building, etc.) There will be other duties as assigned during further sessions. Training will be conducted prior to the beginning of the convention.
