YWC 2020 Volunteers
Hosts Needed for the Calgary Young Writers Conference
Looking for a fun way to spend a Saturday and add to your resume? Do you like to meet authors and illustrators? Then we have an opportunity for you!
We require one adult in each of the student presentations. The duties of the hosts will include introducing and thanking the speaker, handing out and collecting evaluation forms, as well as supervising students during the presentation. Hosts receive free attendance, professional development and complimentary lunch with presenters. (Please note: Teachers/adults who are supervising children may not host a session due to time conflicts)
What We Need From You...
If you are interested we need a valid Security Clearance and your top 4 choices of who you would like to host!
- We do require that you have a valid security clearance. We will need a copy of this before the conference date. I prefer if you can scan it and email it but if you would like to fax or mail it to me let me know and we can arrange that.
- Select your top 4 choices to host. Please follow the link to the Calgary Young Writers website and look under Session Information and Speaker Biographies. Let me know your top four choices for who you would like to host on the day of the conference. You will be scheduled to host the same presenter twice, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. If you would like to arrange with another host to switch presenters for the afternoon session that is up to you. If your top 4 choices are unavailable I will be slotting you in to host wherever you are needed.
If you are interested or have any questions please send an email with the information above to firstname.lastname@example.org.
