    The Local Arrangements Committee Hospitality Group invites you to volunteer to serve as a welcoming and helpful guide to fellow conference participants at the Hospitality Booth at Huntington Place, May 16-19, 2023.   

    If you are NOT a member of either SLA or MLA, you have the option of receiving one free day of onsite registration in addition to access to all virtual programming if you commit to working 6 hours onsite.  Please indicate your interest in this option in the Jotform. This is a great way for students or librarians who haven't joined a professional organization to attend the conference and learn about MLA/SLA.

    We welcome any amount of time you can commit to staffing the booth. 

    The booth will be open starting at 11:00am and will close at 6:00pm on Tuesday; 8:30am-6:00pm Wednesday, 8:30-6:00pm on Thursday, and 8:30- 3:30pm on Friday.  We hope to have two volunteers per hour time slot.  Local arrangement committee members will be responsible for opening the booth and staffing the first half hour time slot and staffing the final hour time slot and closing the booth for the day.   

    Volunteer hours will be made first come, first served basis. 

    You will be asked for the following information in our volunteer form:  

    • How many hours are you willing to volunteer? (Maximum-6 hours) 
    • Your availability during 2-hour time blocks. We will do our best to place you in hour time slots in the given time block. 

      Bag stuffing Tuesday 10:00am-12:00pm 
    • Tuesday B– 11:00am -1:00pm

    Please use this link to share your volunteer availability and provide preferred contact information: MLA/SLA'23 Call for Volunteers (jotform.com) 

    The poll for volunteering will close on/or before April 7th based on how quickly slots are filled.  (Those non-MLA/SLA members who asked for 6 hours in order to receive conference registration discount will be notified if we are able to satisfy this request by April 10th in order to register with the discount code before the early bird registration closes on April 14th.) 

    Volunteers will be notified about their confirmed hours by May 2nd 

    Thank you for your time and service,
