Volunteer Position Description
Ice Breaker- Greeter / Counter
As greeters, you will check and count the badges of each individual for appropriate marking before they are admitted to the Sunday Evening Ice Breaker. If they do not have this event marked off on their badge, please direct them to the registration booth located outside the Exhibition Hall. This is a good opportunity to say hello to old friends and begin your exposure to the conference environment.
YP/Water for People (WFP) Booth Attendant
The YP/WFP booth, located in or near the OPCEA Tradeshow floor will be staffed by volunteers who will answer questions from exhibition attendees about our committee and Water for People. This volunteer position is good for new members who would like to engage further with the WEAO.
Water for People Social Event - Ticket Sales / Admission
During the Monday night event, volunteers will be stationed at the entrance to collect admission tickets. Please note that there are two types of tickets -- one at $50 which includes dinner, and the other at $20 which is for admittance only after 9pm for entertainment portion of evening. This is a good volunteer opportunity for those looking to increase their exposure to industry members. This is a great way to meet other young professionals, seasoned professionals, and industry members.
Awards Luncheon – Greeter / Counter
This event will be held at the Hilton Hotel ballroom. As greeters and counters, you will check the badges of individuals entering the Monday awards luncheon for proof of purchase, and count the number of attendees entering the lunch area.
OPCEA Exhibition Lunch – Line Monitor / Counter
The Tuesday luncheon is on the OPCEA Exhibition floor. It will be your responsibility to mark the badge and count each individual entering the lunch area, confirming that they have received their meal.
Banquet - Greeter / Counter
