From Bouncers To Tweeters: Volunteering At The Conference

from By Sandra Gurvis

Along with receiving a $25 per day discount for your time, ASJA members have cornucopia of opportunities to choose from.

For new members, Emily recommends serving as a greeter during registration for either or both days. “It’s a great way to meet people and strike up a conversation,” she observes. “I have made many lasting friendships that way; people in ASJA are always willing to share advice and information.” more
