Regarding volunteers with physical challenges or disabilities:

Every effort will be made to allow participation by volunteers with physical challenges. Regardless of a volunteer’s physical capabilities, she/he must be able to communicate verbally in a clear and concise manner in order to best assist Congress attendees. A variety of tasks will require volunteers, so if movement is a challenge, a stationary job will be assigned.

2. Within two weeks, we will review your application on a rolling basis and contact you.
