Unit 354 sure could use some volunteers to staff this event. The current staff is as follows:

  • Finance Chair - Jennifer O’Neill
  • Publicity Chair - Joyce Keane
  • Registration Chair - Sharon Neff
  • I/N Program Chair - Stephanie Haddy
  • Fundraising Chair - Susan Kraght
  • Partnership Chair - Phebe Packer

 With the possible exception of the Finance Chair, all of these groups will need volunteers

at varying times before and during the NABC.

 IN addition, the following Committee Chair positions are currently unfilled:

  • VOLUNTEER COORDINATOR - our most pressing need now. This is the person who will
  • recruit volunteers and help staff the other committees. 
  • Information Chair - Organizes information for participants regarding restaurants,
  • local sightseeing spots, shopping etc. Usually prepares handouts for players with maps. Coordinate with PHX Tourist Bureau
  • Prizes Chair - Select Section Prizes etc
  • Charity Pair - Organize events to raise money for designated charity
  • Transportation & Parking Chair - not needed until a few weeks before
  • the event (gets parking passes, hands out discounts etc)
  • Player Hospitality - organizes with the hotel the snacks and entertainment at the NABC

 In addition to looking for people to head up one of these committees, we can use
volunteers all the time - there are never enough.

 Anyone interested in working on one of the committees should contact the Committee Chair (Email in cc line).
Anyone interested in filling one of the Committee Chair positions should contact me directly. Ken Titow@  ken.titow@icloud.com
