"No matter how many pictures you've seen, until you actually get your foot in the door and start to experience OCALICON... there's no way to even truly describe what that whole feeling and experience is until you walk through those doors … this tops it all."
Volunteers agree to work one full day of the conference (approximately 6:00 am - 6:00 pm) and in return receive complimentary registration for the other 2 days of the conference.
Volunteers must attend one of the mandatory Volunteer Orientation sessions:
Option 1: 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST | Tuesday, November 19
Option 2: 6:00 - 7:00 pm EST | Wednesday, November 20
The Volunteer Orientation is held on-site at the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Failure to attend the Volunteer Orientation will disqualify a candidate from serving as a volunteer.
Wednesday volunteers MUST attend the Volunteer Orientation on Tuesday, November 19.
Thursday and Friday volunteers may attend the Volunteer Orientation on either Tuesday or Wednesday evening.
Note: Volunteers provide essential duties and services for the OCALI Conference. Volunteers who fail to show up for their designated volunteer day or who fail to contact OCALI within 24 hours of any emergency which may hinder or prevent one's participation as a volunteer may be billed as a regular conference attendee.
