The Calgary 2019 National Convention Planning Committee needs your help to make this a fantastic event.
Secretary: Catherine Jeffrey
Treasurer: Renee Spohn
To make this Convention the best it can be we will need many volunteers to help out! Consider signing up as a group from your parish or make it a fun event with friends or family!
We have an online signup at http://signup.com/go/ByVodY. Please sign up for any or all the areas you are interested in. Once you have signed up, your information will be forwarded to the portfolio chairs and they will be in contact with you directly! Volunteer shifts and particulars will be discussed with your Chairs and will be finalized closer to our event.
We will have Volunteer signup sheets for each of our portfolios at the Diocesan Convention in May and will be there to answer all your questions.
The largest number of Volunteers are needed for the Hospitality portfolio. These ladies will be the “face of Calgary”, welcoming delegates and directing them to the various events and convention venues. For example: delegates will be arriving at the Calgary airport from the Wednesday night before the convention and we will have Volunteers greeting them at the airport, and giving them directions as to where they should be picking up their transportation to get them to the Hyatt.
We call on you to volunteer, to be a huge part of OUR 2019 CWL National Convention.
