Volunteer to help organise our 2013 conference

We urgently need a keen, reliable volunteer to help us to organise our next conference. How about you?

The Aniridia Network UK Conference 2013 will be in London. Sadly Heather, who did the job last year, unexpectedly has to return to the USA next month. Despite this she has valiantly promised, to do remotely, what she can to set up the event. So we really really need someone to handle things in person here and on the day itself.

Don’t worry if you haven’t planned a conference before or aren’t sure you’d know what to do. The only requirement for volunteering is that you are willing to make the effort to perform the tasks and dedicate some of your personal time to working on it. We will provide the full details of how things were organised last year as a reference.

You would work together with Heather and other volunteers on all aspects of the event including:

  • Selection and booking of venue plus caterers and childcare services
  • Liaison with presenters and exhibitors
  • Publicity and communications with attendees
  • Registration and payment systems
  • Evaluation methods

Read the full Conference Officer job description. It is a very exciting role with a huge amount of satisfaction at the end. The gratitude expressed by delegates and knowing the difference the event has made to them is really uplifting. It’ll be an big achievement for you to shout about on a CV too.

Last year’s conference was a massive success. We are eager to improve upon it, but we can’t without your help. Step forward now and be a hero to the whole aniridia community in the UK.
