Do you want an opportunity to shape Ontario Contact in Midland?
You are just the person we need!
Planning has started for Ontario Contact in Midland, November 6 - 8, 2014. We have an enthusiastic local committee eager to showcase the conference and their beautiful community but we are also looking for volunteers familiar with the conference to assist.
There are some wonderful opportunities with the facilities available to us this year and we want to take full advantage to make this the best Ontario Contact ever! The following opportunities are available:
Steering Committee - meets about every 6 weeks via teleconference with a couple of on-site visits. Will assist in filling out the schedule surrounding the Showcase and Contact Room.
Spouses Program - activities outside of showcases and meals for spouses to come and explore Historic Huronia
Closing Party - help develop program, determine menu and approach to our annual celebration
Transportation - Midland has two large 16 passenger vans available to us to shuttle between venues but also to assist with airport pickups. We will also be asking our delegates to carpool. Someone with knowledge of our delegates can facilitate the Midland volunteers in making this happen.
Award Nominations and Selection Committee - assist with generating nominations and the winners.
Silent Auction - the proceeds of the auction provide subsidies to artists and presenters needing financial assistance to attend Ontario Contact, and for artists to participate in the Artist Readiness Workshop with the intention of assisting them to enter the touring sector with knowledge and advise to ease their way. You will help gather items as well as suggest new approaches to increase the fun.
