This event brings leaders together to explore the ways in which we can advance race and equity in order to promote healthy, vibrant, and engaged communities. Volunteers are an important part of our operations, and we appreciate your assistance and commitment. As a volunteer, you represent Race in The Heartland to the attendees; your professionalism and courtesy reflects us and our partnerships.

Volunteers are expected to:
• arrive at all events/conference activities at the pre-arranged time
• contact us if you are unable to work at the arranged time
• wear a volunteer nametag, provided by Race in The Heartland
• refrain from cell phone conversations while conference sessions are taking place
• refer questions to a staff member, if the answer is not clearly known to the volunteer
• be polite and courteous to conference attendees, staff, and service personnel

Volunteers will be required to wear the provided volunteer shirt. Please dress comfortably for being on your feet.

You will have the opportunity to meet distinguished community leaders from across the state, speakers from across the country, and connect with business professionals. We hope you benefit from the comradery; however, please keep volunteer tasks in mind as you socialize so that staff can request your assistance as needed.

Volunteer tasks may include:
