Conference Volunteers Needed — What We Need

APH could not pull off such a huge event without the help of its skilled volunteers. There's no better way to get in on all the action than to sign up as a volunteer when you register. Specific details will be communicated prior to the conference, but please sign up to help in one or more of the areas shown below.

Registration Support

Marty Walton and Gloria Nussbaum will oversee on-site registration. The Registration Desk is in the same area as the APH Store. They need volunteers to assemble registration materials in kits on Wednesday morning, October 21. During registration hours (3:00-7:00 pm), they again will need help. Shift scheduling ensures that volunteers will have time to attend the Orientation Session and Welcome Reception. Please note your interest in volunteering on the registration form (Registration starts July 1). Both Gloria and Marty will be able to guide you should you have questions about special activities (Salon Sessions, Community Circle plans, etc.) during the conference. Marty Walton will oversee online registration. For questions about helping before you get to the conference, or questions about online registration, please contact Marty Walton, Conference Registrar.


Meeting and greeting new APH members and first-time APH conference attendees at the Friday Evening Welcome Reception is a satisfying way of ensuring that newcomers are warmly included in the APH family. Greeters enjoy mixing, mingling, and getting to know other APHers. Please sign up when registering.

Workshop Hosts

Workshop hosts will introduce presenters and help ensure that sessions run smoothly. Volunteer, and you will be assigned to one of the workshops you register for. Please sign up when registering. You can contact Wendy Ledger for more information.

Speed Coaching Support

Interested in helping as a host at our speed coaching event or possibly volunteering as a coach? Please sign up when registering. You can email the coordinators Rhonda Kalkwarf & Jessie Campbell for more information and read more about Speed Coaching on the Community Circle page.
