The Arrangements Committee is a pre-convention committee of SD64 DFL. This committee organizes the logistics and helps run things the day of the convention.
Arrangements Committee Updates
Running a convention takes a lot of work – and we are all volunteers. So, we could really use your help to make our convention run smoothly. Contact our arrangements committee at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer for any of these convention-day opportunities:
- Door greeters needed for 45-minute shifts between 1pm and 2:30pm;
- Volunteers available for the duration of the convention to help with various tasks;
- Sergeant-at-Arms, to be nominated at the convention;
- Clean-up volunteers to assist building maintenance in putting away chairs and close down after the convention.
We will provide you with all the necessary information you need to know to answer questions confidently from convention attendees!
Your help will be greatly appreciated!

No moving demonstrations are permitted during balloting.
No disruptive demonstrations in the galleries.
