How many Christ on Campus Volunteers (CCVs) will be accepted for each conference?
The number of student volunteers is determined by the number of registrants for each conference. At UNLV, we will accept 10 students, at ISU we will have 16 and Emory University there will be 13. HT Conferences reserves the right to adjust these numbers if we determine that more or less are actually needed to help with the conference.
How old do I have to be to be a CCV?
You must be at least 18 years old, have completed at least one year of college level studies, and still be considered a student at the time of the conference.
How do I apply to volunteer as a CCV?
You will be able to apply online at www.coramdeo2011.org
during the regular Registration period. Applicants will be notified by March 15 if they have been selected to serve as a CCV.
Should I still register with my church's group?
If your church is sending a group to the conference, you should register with your group as well as complete the CCV application so that you are certain to get into the conference, should it fill. If you are selected as a CCV, your registration will then be processed separately from your group. You will also be assigned housing in a separate staff area. Those who are accepted as CCVs who are not registered with a group for a conference may still register as an individual at that time, and will need to pay their $100 deposit upon notification. CCVs should plan to arrive on site by noon on Monday of the conference week to help with set-up.
How much is my registration if I am selected as a CCV?
CCV registration is significantly discounted from the regular Registration to $225 per person, per conference. This covers all of the regular conference registration materials, an extra day of housing/meals, and additional t-shirts.
Will I have special privileges as a volunteer?
Yes, CCVs will have staff (i.e., "backstage") access to all areas of the conference and a special conference staff t-shirt. In fact, you will receive multiple staff t-shirts, because CCVs need to be easily identifiable throughout the week!
When will I know if I have been selected?
Applications will be accepted during the regular Registration period. We should have all CCVs selected and notified by March 15.
Do I have to arrive early or leave late?
Yes, if possible, plan to arrive by noon on Monday of the conference week for orientation/set-up, and plan to leave around dinner time on the last day to help pack up after the conference. This is not an absolute requirement-we realize that some of you will be traveling with a group and cannot control these factors.
What kinds of things do CCVs do?
Directing groups through the registration area, helping prepare and distribute materials, directing people to dorms and parking areas, break-down of the information table after the end of the conference, etc.
CCVs are assigned to a sectional speaker to hand out materials and evaluations in the sectionals, make sure speakers have any needed food and/or beverages, run AV, etc.
Help setup and breakdown the chapel, crowd control, usher, assist with altar guild duties.
Help set-up and break-down.
1-2 CCVs per conference will be asked to take digital pictures of events (you will need to provide your own equipment).
Help supervise give directions, run errands, answer questions, put up signs, etc.
