Love family history? Want to attend the largest family history gathering in the world? Come volunteer for the RootsTech conference for at least nine hours and receive a free RootsTech pass. The conference is scheduled for February 3rd through the 6th. Below you will find the shifts that are available:
6:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Wednesday-Friday
6:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Saturday
This conference provides an opportunity to network with family history professionals and learn about the inner-workings of a large conference. Help is wanted. To volunteer, contact Ann Baxter, program administrator for Conferences and Workshops at BYU.
In addition, BYU will be helping with the registration area and will need at least 15 people throughout the week. If you need transportation, the Department of Conference and Workshops will provide a van to transport volunteers from the Conference Center (near the Marriott Center) to the RootsTech conference.
The benefits of a pass include access to the keynote sessions, more than 200 classes, the expo hall, and all of the evening events. Please note Family Discovery Day on Saturday does require a separate registration.
If you are eager to work additional hours, there are additional rewards:
- Lunch for each 9 hour shift or longer you volunteer
- Up to $5 in parking reimbursement per day if you do not have Temple Plaza parking privileges
Volunteers who give 10 hours or more will also be given a conference bag.
Volunteers who give 18 hours or more will be invited to a volunteer thank you luncheon after RootsTech.
