Everyone wants a free t-shirt, right? I mean, they’re comfortable, easy to wash, and help you blend in with the students. Well, sort of…
So I was surprised to learn at yesterday’s MACUL board meeting that we have an over abundance of extra t-shirts. Apparently, we’ve got too many of them, and they’re just sitting around in the MACUL office where Ric Wiltse eyes them, hoping to secretly take home the entire stash of beautiful MACUL tees. As great as Ric looks in a T-shirt (and he does), I was shocked that MACUL members hadn’t already claimed them all, so they could look stylish lounging on the deck this summer, while they proclaimed their love for MACUL.
So I asked the fellow board members, “what does a member have to do in order to receive their own MACUL tee?” The answer? Volunteer for 1 or 2 hours at the conference. That’s it! No tricks, no gimmicks, just volunteer an hour or two of your time to be an “ASK ME!” person, and help conference goers find their way around to the various sessions, exhibit hall, or restrooms. Sounds easy; in fact, so easy that I’m going to be donating an hour or two of my conference time to snag one of those T-shirts. Well, that and I really enjoy helping newcomers to the conference find their way around. It’s a simple job since you’re given a map and can point out the registration booth for really difficult questions like where people go for SB-CEUs. That andyou get a chance to introduce yourself to new MACUL members or run into old friends.
So if you’ve been pining away for one of those luxuriously soft and stylish MACUL t-shirts, visit the 2008 MACUL Volunteer Page, read up on the “ASK ME!” duties, and then click on the link to Volunteer and fill out the simple online form (takes less than 5 minutes). Please, help MACUL get rid of all of these t-shirts so we have room to buy more goodies and freebies for the members!
