Interest and Availability for LWMS 2019 Convention for Volunteers from OUTSIDE THE WILD ROSE CIRCUIT
The purpose of this form is to collect contact and other basic information as well as ask potential volunteers when and in what ways they'd be willing to help. The collection of everyone's answers will help organizers determine how best to utilize those who volunteer. It is perfectly OK to use one person's email address for multiple people. PLEASE NOTE: Filling out this form does not commit you to helping with every last job that you indicate interests you. In the spring we'll give you the opportunity to agree to specific tasks and/or shifts.
Thank you for your interest in HELPing the WILD ROSE circuit!
