At the booth, in addition to having a great time, we will be renewing existing memberships, completing applications for new members, handing out SWAG, presenting brochures full of wonderful information about scholarships, events, and programs associated with AWG, completing resume reviews, taking donations for AWGF and spreading the news about the organization.
We will need volunteers at the booth to help share the advantages of the AWG organization: our mission, activities, accomplishments, and the advantages of Connecting Women geoscientists. Michelle Sutherland will be present at the booth majority of the conference, but really can use some assistance.
If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up at https://volunteersignup.org/YWLA4 and questions can be directed to Michelle at 612-232-1804 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
