THANK YOU for your interest in volunteering at the 2020 OAAS Convention.

In exchange for your time the finance committee has agreed to waive partial registration fees depending on the length of time you are willing to share with the OAAS while at the convention.

Here are a few more details:

At the early bird rate of $125 for a three-day registration to the convention, the OAAS would like to offer you a discount reimbursement of your registration after the convention. For a volunteer who is willing to provide five hours or more (5+ hrs) over the three days, we will be happy to refund you your entire registration fee. For volunteers who are able to provide two to four hours (2-4 hrs) of assistance over the three days, we can refund half your registration fees after convention. (please complete the convention registration online prior to convention).

If you are interested to provide a few hours to the 2020 convention, we would love to hear from you. Below are a few examples of where the OAAS is seeking some volunteer support.
