Blog Guelph: Guelph Reads

His Nose, originally uploaded by RavenGirlPhotography.

Guelph Reads needs volunteers......

Advertising / Media - Organize advertising and media coverage before, at and after the event. Get people talking and thinking about Guelph Reads!

Chief Elections Officer - Figure out a voting system that's fair, includes live, web-based and other accessible forms of voting. Let democracy prevail!

Programmes - make attractive, cheap and useful programs to hand out at the event. It may be easier to manage if someone writes it and someone else designs and prints it.

Website developer - Keep the website fresh and up to date. Provide some of the web content. Troubleshoot the inevitable problems. Impose order on chaos.

Sound Tech - someone who knows what needs to be done. Get the equipment to and from the venue. Make sure it is properly set up and used. Troubleshoot.

Reception - Help organize refreshments and community tables for the resource reception in the foyer after the debate.

Event volunteers - Show up ready to help on April 26th. Tasks to be announced.

If you can provide your skills to one of these areas or if you want more information about Guelph Reads, please email [email protected] with your phone contact info as soon as possible.
