Subject: DPS Mailing #06-20:  Volunteers Needed for DPS Meeting....
Greetings, DPS members,
  1)  Volunteers Needed for DPS Meeting, October 8-13
  2)  Remember to Vote!
  3)  Sensor Web Session at Fall AGU Meeting
We will need between twenty and thirty volunteers to assist in running 
the DPS meeting this year. Volunteer tasks include stuffing 
registration folders with all of the materials to be handed out; 
assisting with registration especially on Sunday evening and Monday 
morning when most people arrive; checking badges to be sure 
people are registered at the meeting room doors; assisting with A-V 
in the lecture halls; helping in the cyber cafe and exhibit hall as 
needed; assisting in the press room; and running errands of various 
sorts. We will expect all volunteers to attend an orientation 
session on Sunday afternoon, and be available for two days' service 
out of the five days of the actual meeting. In return for service, 
volunteers who are not presenting a paper will receive free 
registration to attend all days of the meeting. We also 
encourage volunteering among those who are giving papers. For them, 
we offer a $100 reduction in registration fee. For student or 
emeritus members, this amounts to free registration. Volunteers 
will also receive a special color "volunteer" tee shirt with the 
meeting graphic of the Mars Rover traffic jam, to be worn while 
volunteering and yours to keep afterward.
