Okay, you did it! You checked the website for the “Sages In the Desert” toastmasters conference May 6, 7 and 8, 2011 at the beautiful destination, Osoyoos.
You are the frugal sort, who likes to save money so you purchased right away. Now you can anticipate the event and encourage your pals to join also. Good thinking! You can bring some friends PLUS make some new friends.
After you went to the District21 Toastmasters website and paid ~ you went back to the Sages in the Desert website. Of course you did because you wanted to volunteer! A click and email later you let the sargeant-of- arms know how you would like to join in. By volunteering you are part of the success of the conference and you only need donate a hour ~You are needed but it is also part of the fun and conference experience!
*psst – I will tell you a small secret. I volunteer at Penticton Ironman race nearly every year. Why give a couple hours of my time?? – it is FUN! I am part of the race, I am a hero to the athletes and they have trained for years so I want to support them.
That is why you should be a volunteer at “Sages In the Desert“. The conference is a weekend, but it is the product of a year of planning. Interesting FACT – You will actually enhance the event for yourself by volunteering. Be a hero to the organizers, and feel good yourself by making your own personal contribution to the weekend’s success.
Toastmaster Club success is the exactly the same – The success of the Club is the success of EVERYONE in the Club doing their part. We all know this from experience. This is not a small thing ~ it is a big BIG thing. Volunteers are crucial – many hands make light work ~ remember (smile).
Don’t forget to volunteer, please!
Now you have paid for the weekend, and volunteered in advance.
Thank you !!! Invite your friends to volunteer with you and anticipate a memorable weekend!
But don’t forget your homework assignment. eh?
