OCIS seeks volunteers for the 2017 Annual Meeting

This year, our New Member Orientation will be held: Please see the announcement below and, if you are a current OCIS member and are willing to help please register here.

  • Friday, August 4th, 2017
  • New Member Orientation, Program Session: 184 | Submission: 18048 | Sponsor(s): (MBR)
  • Hyatt Regency Atlanta in Hanover Hall C& D, 5:30-6 PM


We will need 1-2 volunteers to meet and greet members from 6:00-8:00 pm on Friday evening (immediately following the first half hour of our opening presentation that takes place from 5:30-6:00 pm).  As in past years, the Orientation transitions into the Exhibit Hall Opening Reception which is where Divisions, Interest Groups, and Theme Committees will be provided a designated table for meeting and greeting new members as well as alumni members from 6-8 pm.  We encourage you to use this occasion to showcase your activities and provide outreach to all members.  Feel free to have available  flyers and give-aways to attract often shy new attendees to your table.  You can drop off any of your materials ahead of time to the Member Resource Center located at the entrance to Registration in the Hyatt.  Staff members will then be happy to place them on your designated table in advance of Friday evening.  We will continue to have our “icebreaker” Passport to Prizes” game card available for attendees.  All you have to do is punch the card of anyone that visits your table with the hole puncher provided and they will be entered into a drawing that takes place at the end of the evening.  It’s been a hugely successful fun evening in the past in helping new attendees feel comfortable!


In addition, we need some OCIS representatives to assist AoM volunteers at the Member Resource Center during peak times in 2 hour increments Friday, Saturday, and Monday to help answer questions. The MRC is open 8-5 each day, please register here.
