Volunteers needed for Melanoma Forum on Jan. 21

Volunteers are needed for the Melanoma Community Research Forum taking place on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017 at the Collaborative Life Sciences Building in Downtown, Portland.  Volunteer jobs include:

Registration Table 
8:00am - 9:30am
These volunteers will check names off the registration list as attendees arrive, and hand out materials. A volunteer orientation one hour before the event will answer any questions that might come up about the agenda for the day, where refreshments or restrooms are located, etc. 

Welcoming and Directing
8:00am - 3:00pm
These volunteers will help direct participants by placing signs in the building before the event, and greeting attendees at the entrance to the parking lot and the entrance to the building. You will still be able to participate, and will only have tasks before the event begins, and during break times. The event will be held at the new OHSU Collaborative Life Sciences Building on the South Waterfront, and since many people have not yet been to this building is can be very helpful to have a person to point them in the right direction. An orientation will start an hour before the event, to give you time to see the area and be familiar with where to direct participants.

Assistant Event Coordinator
8:00am - 3:30pm
This volunteer will have an integral role assisting OHSU staff with any number of duties including directing and answering questions from participants, setting up catering, setting up signage, or other tasks that may come up. We are looking for someone who is flexible, energetic, willing to jump into any role and able to hit the ground running! More information will be provided at a pre-event meeting in person or by phone to talk about the details. A volunteer orientation will take place before the start of the event.

If you are interested or have questions about any of these positions, please contact Faith Tirrell at tirrell@ohsu.edu or 503-418-9314.

Please pass this information along to anyone who you think may be interested. And don't forget to RSVP for the event!
