Putting on a great Oz convention requires a lot of help from many people. Any successful event needs individuals with a broad range of talents to make it special. Are you a wiz of a Wiz at decorating? A convention just isn’t as Ozzy without a colorful aesthetic created by someone with an expert eye. Do you enjoy other types of arts and crafts? Contributing your handiwork to a display gives attendees something new to enjoy. Or perhaps your brains and heart are more inclined toward the presentation of new and interesting research as part of a convention program, or using your audiovisual skills to help the research talks of others shine.
Helping out at a convention doesn’t have to be a huge commitment. It can be something as simple as helping to stuff registration bags with goodies, manning the registration desk or a Club publication sales table, or emceeing an Ozzy show-and-tell session where fellow attendees can show off their favorite collectibles. Volunteering a little bit of your time is also a great way to jump in and meet a bunch of new Oz friends.
