There is no informational briefing for volunteers to attend, however most departments have pre-event meetings and training sessions. If you expressed interest in any groups when filling out the Volunteer Questionnaire, you will be contacted by the Volunteer Coordinator of that department with any pertinent information. Once you have signed up to volunteer, you will be added to the Volunteers-Announce email list, which periodically posts information about volunteering and events for volunteers. Sometime in March/April, we host a Participation/Newbie Orientation meeting where potential volunteers can meet with each department. In July, we sometimes host volunteer barbecues to connect people with volunteer opportunities.
