1 - 4 Philo's group [Philo, can you please pass this email to your volunteers--I would like to get confirmations, Julie]
information for volunteers:
LOCATION: Washington Convention Center, 801 Mount Vernon Place
right at the Convention Center Metro - green line,
also a few blocks to Chinatown-Verizon Center Metro - red and green lines
a few more blocks to Metro Center - red and blue and orange lines
REGISTRATION: This is the tricky part! You must look for a special registration table for volunteers--not for Green Festival volunteers, but for Exhibitors. We do not have specific information for how to find this, and it was not easy last year, so please take your time in reading the signs, and feel free to ask a Green Festival volunteer where to go. You should NOT have to stand in any of the LONG lines! The trick is figuring out where Exhibitors (and their Volunteers) can register. Once you find that spot, simply tell them that you are volunteering for SIERRA CLUB D.C., Booth 409. They will then give you a guest (or visitor) badge good for the whole day. (They told us we do NOT need to put your names on a list.) [If the process is really difficult, Julie will email Sunday people on Saturday evening to give them more specific details.] IMPORTANT: you must return your badge when you leave or they will not be available for later volunteers!!!!
BOOTH: 409 (from the main entrance, go to the left, and then back a short ways. We are not far from the main entrance. We should have three Sierra Club banners up. NOTE: We registered very late, so our name is probably not going to be in any program guide you pick up. Just remember Booth 409!!!
STAFFING: When you arrive, the D.C. Sierra Club person in charge will probably be Amanda Brinton or myself. We will brief you on what you need to know, which is not much!
It is unlikely we will have cellphone reception inside, but Julie Locascio's number is (202) 492-7979.
Please let me know ASAP if you need to change your hours. (And let me know if you have any questions!)
