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 listed below when you register.

Registration Support

Marty Walton and Gloria Nussbaum will oversee on-site registration. They need volunteers to assemble registration materials in kits on Sunday morning, October 23. During registration hours (3:00-7:00 pm), they again will need help. Shift scheduling ensures that volunteers have time to attend the Orientation Session and Welcome Reception. Please note your interest in volunteering for either or both of these activities on the online registration form.


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 Jackie Devine 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 Rhonda Kalkwarf for more information and read more about Speed Coaching on the Community Circle page.
