CSICon is five months away and, while nothing is certain, I'm putting out a call for volunteers to help. Tentative volunteers, of course, since CFI hasn't even updated the web site
for 2020 yet.
We get invited to the volunteer and staff dinner the Wednesday before CSICon, get free admission to the Saturday night party, and get a free t-shirt. If you're randomly chosen to check tickets at one of the workshops on Thursday, you get to attend it for free also. We take about four hours of your time and _never_ during something you paid for. When the speakers start, you're sitting in the audience.
Last year two volunteers, Kyle and Susan, IIRC, were checking badges before Banachek's show when Banachek asked them if they wanted to be part of the show. They agreed and got to have their minds "read" during the show. It may not happen again, but you never know what might happen when you are visible and approachable.
CFI's board will meet in early June to decide. If you're interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org
