The Linguistic Society of America (LSA) will hold its next Annual Meeting at the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower from January 8-11, 2015. We are seeking local volunteers to help provide information on the Annual Meeting website to help visitors to Portland take advantage of local transportation, dining and cultural opportunities and more.
Interested parties should reply to David Robinson (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 10. Depending on inclinations and abilities, volunteers will be asked to prepare 1) a dining guide, weighted towards less expensive (for the one-third of attendees who are students) and close to the hotel; 2) a guide to getting around by public transit, including between the hotel and airport; 3) a guide to local attractions; or 4) a welcome YouTube video. Ideally, these items will be in place on the Meeting website by early December.
Student volunteers who spend at least eight hours of time working on one or more of these projects will be offered complimentary registration for the Meeting.
