The Santa Cruz Conference team is making wonderful progress getting this 
conference together on /very/ short notice. */Your help is needed./*


*Auction* - organize donations at the conference, supervise auction 
setup, keep records of donations and sales. A busy job, but a relatively 
short one!

*Exhibit *- Due to the time constraints this year, there will not be a 
formal juried GNSI Member Exhibit; we are planning an expanded Portfolio 
Sharing Event on Monday evening, that will include a People’s Choice 
vote on one matted piece per portfolio. We still need someone to 
coordinate publicity, help with the arrangements for the portfolio 
sharing setup, and manage the balloting. Exhibit Coordinator will also 
need to work with the Communications Coordinator to arrange area publicity.

*Financial* - We need a conscientious, well-organized bookkeeper for 
Conference Finances. You do not HAVE to attend the conference to do 
this, but it’s best if you do. Must know how to work a spreadsheet.

*Social Events* - Have some fun and plan a few big parties without 
spending your own money! Creative ideas are encouraged. Coordinate, 
organize, supervise.

*Registration* - Registration is done mostly online; the Registration 
Coordinator needs to keep track of numbers, help solve registration 
issues (online or by mail), answer questions, and work with finance and 
the Conference Chair. You would not HAVE to attend but it helps. A big 
job that requires a lot of conscientious organizational skills.

*Merchandise* - Select and order merchandise for the conference 
(T-shirts, mugs, your choice!); keep track of orders and make sure the 
items reach the conference in good time. You do not need to attend to do 
this job, as it’s done before the conference begins. [This is an 
important job but not a huge one; it’s a /great/ way to start 
volunteering for conferences!].

*/These positions are not limited to just one person! If two or more of 
you want to tackle a job, that’s fine. You will not need to reinvent the 
wheel or do these jobs without support or information; these are all 
regular conference positions and there are lots of veterans who can 
advise you on what to do. This will be a great conference, and better 
with your help: the GNSI runs on Volunteer Fuel, so PLEASE help keep us
