reflectionVolunteering at Ministry Days

I had such a fun time getting to meet many of you who attended the Institute for Excellence in Ministry this past January. As a new staff member, it was wonderful to put faces to the names of those with whom I'd been communicating via email in the weeks before the event. I am especially grateful to those folks who volunteered to help with registration and other needs during the week. We couldn't have done it without you!

As Ministry Days approaches, it is once again my responsibility to act as your registrar and volunteer coordinator. If you've volunteered before, you know that spending an hour or two helping your colleagues and working with staff can be quite fun. There are lots of opportunities to jump in: registration, the ribbon table, greeting, and the ever popular (and important) packet preparation. This is a labor-intensive job, and the more folks we have helping, the faster it should go. We will also need some help with moving from the Marriott to the Convention Center since we need to be in two locations this year. There are also opportunities to help us out by taking a shift at the UUMA booth in the exhibition hall, and helping with AV during worship and program time.

I am using the online volunteer system signup.com to organize people and schedules. To sign up for help with registration, go to http://signup.com/go/PUZCnAp, scroll through the schedule, and put your name down for the time and activity that you would like. To sign up for helping at the booth, go to http://signup.com/go/LDsHdTs. Easy!

One of the elements that I enjoy most about my work with UUMA is getting to interact directly with the members, whether by phone or email, but in-person is the best. I am looking forward to my first Ministry Days, and getting to meet more of you.

Feel free to contact me with your registration or volunteering questions at office@uuma.org. I am always happy to help in whatever way that I can.
