This is a full-day conference primarily for people with Parkinson’s and their family members and caregivers. We have volunteer needs for attendee registration/check in and manning each of the breakout sessions that take place before and after lunch. In each breakout session, we have 7 talks taking place in different rooms. One volunteer will be in each room. Volunteers should be able to do a lot of walking/standing. The duties are as follows:

  • Make sure microphone and equipment/chairs in room are set up

  • Introduce speaker
  • If technical difficulties occur - make sure that the church tech staff is notified
  • Watch the time
