This year’s Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH) Conference is meeting in Baltimore, November 17-20, and the local arrangements committee is interested in recruiting graduate student volunteers. SACRPH meets every other year and attracts a variety of scholars interested in all aspects of urban and city planning history as well as urban planning professionals and civic activists. This year’s conference is the biggest yet and could be of interest to grad students working on urban issues of any variety. A program is available at the conference website: http://dcp.ufl.edu/sacrph/conference/program.pdf
Volunteers work shifts of three to four hours and sign up for particular tasks. Responsibilities include assisting with the book exhibit, A/V troubleshooting, and in-person registration. Volunteers who take one shift will receive free registration for one day of the conference; volunteers who take two shifts will receive free registration for the entire conference.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact David Schley at: firstname.lastname@example.org for information on available slots and duties. Most openings are for A/V troubleshooting, but several slots remain in other capacities.
