Networking and Volunteering Opportunities at the NORDP 2017 Conference!

There’s still time to register for the 2017 Annual Conference! NORDP invites all conference attendees to make new connections at the conference by participating in the volunteer and networking opportunities listed below.

If you have questions about volunteering or the networking dinners, please contact Jenna McGuire at mcguire.165@osu.edu.

Networking Dinners:

Organize or join a networking dinner at a local restaurant.  Facilitators will decide the restaurant, whether your dinner will have a theme, and the number of participants.  Each guest pays their own bill.  NORDP has provided a list of local restaurants.

To join a dinner:

To facilitate a dinner:

As more facilitators sign up to host a dinner, more sign-ups will be added!

Morning Walk/Runs:

Volunteer to lead or join a group on a walk or run on one of the trails near the hotel.  Leaders will determine the path, whether the group will walk or run, the number of participants, and the start/end times. A trail map is provided in the links below.

As more leaders sign up to lead a walk/run, more sign-ups will be added!

Assist with Conference Registration:

Gain conference administration experience and meet new people by greeting conference attendees, passing out registration materials/badges, etc. Registration assistants will not handle cash transactions.

Serve as a Session Scribe and Host during the Concurrent Sessions:

Volunteer to assist the presenters during concurrent sessions.  As a host, you will check with the presenters to see if assistance is needed with the room, audio/video, etc. and seek conference personnel for support if needed.  As the session Scribe, you will record a summary of the session that includes key take away ideas (NORDP will provide a template and further instructions). Information on the sessions can be found within the conference program here.

Help Spread the Word (Social Media)

Volunteer to live tweet or blog about the conference and its speakers.  Dianne Norcutt will provide additional details for all social media volunteers.
