Volunteer Opportunities

Putting on a yearly Meeting requires a large amount of work. Our tradition is that as much as possible of this work is done by the attenders themselves, both to reduce the cost of AS and to strengthen the bonds among attenders. We ask all who are able to choose two jobs from the list below.

When choosing your TWO choices for volunteer positions at AS, please give first consideration to helping with the Children's Program. In the next section you will find all the job tasks with their assigned job codes.

You can see these JOB codes by using pull-down menu on the online registration. They are actually labelled 'Work', but many of us think these opportunities can be 'Fun'. If you want to add a note about your choice of jobs or time availability, select CNote and a box will open where you can add this note. 

Also, some jobs require you to be on campus early or stay late. Please be sure you are going to be here to do the job. At the moment we have no virtual or telecommuting choices.
