Hospitality and Volunteers

The Hospitality Committee of the Chicagoland Genealogical Consortium (CGC), the local host organization, looks forward to welcoming attendees to the NGS 2006 conference and the Chicago area. Hospitality members can be recognized by their neon green, yellow, pink and orange hats.

The Hospitality Committee will have an information desk set up near the Exhibitor Hall. Make this your first stop with questions about the conference, local research facilities, restaurants and tourist attractions. These volunteers will have plenty of resources on hand to help answer your questions. The Hyatt’s concierge desk is also ready to help with directions, provide tourist brochures, etc.

In addition to the Hospitality desk, other volunteers will be stationed at key locations throughout the conference area of the hotel to answer questions. If you need help finding the Exhibitor Hall, a luncheon location, the computer labs, or have other questions, look for the volunteers wearing “Ask Me!” buttons.

A message board will be set up near the Exhibitor Hall. Attendees can leave messages about carpooling, arranging outings, buying or selling meal tickets, finding missing friends, or seeking long lost cousins. There will also be a message board in the Volunteer Office.

There are still volunteer opportunities available. Your help would be appreciated no matter what your level of experience at conferences or with volunteering. As an added incentive, volunteers will be entered in daily drawings for cash awards and other prizes.

To volunteer call Peggy Gleich, 608-289-1180 (cell) or contact her at the conference.

The members of the CGC and the many volunteers are eagerly awaiting your arrival. We are sure it will be a great conference!
