Medical Library Association Annual Conference and Exhibition Call for Volunteers May 2012

The Medical Library Association (MLA) is holding its next annual conference in Seattle, May 18th - 23rd, 2012. Attend presentations, hear from experts, see the latest products and network with over 2000 librarians. Conferences require many hands, and we are recruiting MLA members and non-members for volunteer opportunities noted below. Shifts vary from 2-4 hours, between 7 am and 7 pm.

Not an MLA member? Have you dreamed of attending MLA but couldn't stretch your budget? This is your opportunity!  In return for every four hours of service, you receive a one-day pass! Multiple days can be earned for multiple shifts.  MLA members are not eligible for passes, but karma points are plentiful.


Volunteer Opportunities

Hospitality Information Booth:

Exercise your customer service skills! Answer questions about the conference, including schedule changes, provide information about conference and emergency services, transportation, restaurants, and other Seattle-related fun facts.

Prepare Annual Meeting Bags:

Rock out in your comfy shoes while you interact with other volunteers.
